Wright’s Accessible Usonian—The Laurent House in Rockford

Tuesday, October 23

Calling it “my little gem,” Frank Lloyd Wright encouraged clients to visit the house he built in 1952 for Kenneth and Phyllis Laurent in Rockford, Illinois. See the fully restored Laurent House, the only home Wright designed to be handicapped accessible.

After lunch, the excursion will stop at the William Pettit Chapel in nearby Belvidere, Illinois. This 1906 building has all the elements of Wright’s classic Prairie style, including a central fireplace and continuous bands of windows. Trip includes lunch and transportation.
