See all of Frank Lloyd Wright in Western New York in one day, by way of a charming trolley ride!
This is a rare opportunity to experience a variety of Wright’s residential, functional, recreational, and monumental designs – both historic and newly constructed.
Leave the driving and planning to us! Begin at Forest Lawn’s Margaret L. Wendt Archive and Resource Center and proceed on the fully-enclosed, climate-controlled Forest Lawn trolley to the Martin House (1903-05) for an extended tour. The next stop is the Filling Station designed by Wright for Buffalo in 1927 and built in 2013 inside the Pierce Arrow Museum. Drive by Larkinville and arrive for a tour of the Fontana Boathouse (2007) on the Black Rock Canal. Continue on to Graycliff (1926-31) for an essentials tour then visit historic Forest Lawn’s Blue Sky Mausoleum (2004). The trolley will return you to Margaret L. Wendt Archive and Resource Center. This tour package also includes a delicious lunch buffet.
A knowledgeable guide will be on hand to point out architectural treasures along the way including the site of the Larkin Administration Building (1904) and manufacturing buildings in an area now known as Larkinville.
$150 / $140 Members of the Martin House, Graycliff and Forest Lawn
