  • Well worth stopping and taking the tour, especially if you like mid century Architecture. It does not take long to tour and it is close to downtown. 
  • My girlfriend and I have never been inside a home he has designed and also we have lived in Alabama most of our lives without us knowing of this place. This is a very rare gem for Alabama. If you love...  read more »
  • This is the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in Alabama. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable, and tours can be as few as one to two persons per group. You can freely walk through the entire house and take pictures. The gift shop across the street is also nice to visit. Be sure to check out the pieces on display from local artist Robin Wade.
  • The Rosenbaum House, now owned by the city of Florence is a gem of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. He built the original structure, and then when the Rosenbaum's needed more room because they had 4 boys, he came back and designed the addition..Mrs Rosenbaum lived in the house until shortly before her death, the heirs gave the house to the city of Florence. The City has done a wonderful job of renovating and keeping the original house in the style in which it was built. Definitely worth the trip to see it, and we were delighted to find the house was open on Sunday afternoon!
  • Hats off to Florence for restoring/maintaining an architectural treasure. The Rosenbaums reportedly had to coax/cajol Wright into creating a Usonian design home for them. The structure reveals the unintended consequences of stamping visionary ideas on a house. Along with liberating and advanced designs come rigid restrictions (narrow doorways, tiny kitchen and dining, small closets, etc.) that prevent evolution as times and family needs change. The tour adds up to a memorable experience.
  • Beautifully restored example of FLW's Usonian design. Perhaps the Shoals finest gem. Interesting that most of the many visitors seem to be from out of state or another continent. Tours available daily.
  • Nice home & restoration. We arrived @10 minutes into 45 min tour, otherwise have to wait. Only 1 guide. Not child friendly, tour guide tolerated children. Reccomend older kids only.
