On Saturday, November 22nd, 2014 from 10am-noon, one of the city’s Frank Lloyd Wright homes will be opened for a very special tour. Throughout the course of the year, The Davidson House is inaccessible to the public, which is unfortunate, because there was a time that the landmark building was destined to become a bed and breakfast. Unfortunately neighbors protested the initiative, and the dream was squashed. Now, it’s tough to get into this house unless you know the owner.
From Preservation Buffalo Niagara:
The Davidson House, built in 1908, was designed for Walter Davidson, who worked at the Larkin Company. The Davidson House reveals prairie style principles similar to those seen in the Darwin D. Martin House.
Master Docent Marla Bujnicki will guide visitors through the first floor of this private home as well as give an overall look at the history of the beautiful Parkside neighborhood.
The tour will be held on Saturday, November 22nd from 10am- noon. Walk-ups are welcome and tours will be given every 15-20 minutes throughout that time with the last being given at 11:30. Guests that day can also purchase a variety of Buffalo themed gifts for the Buffalover on their Christmas list. Cash or check are preferred for payment. Tickets are $15 for general admission or $10 for PBN members. If you have a membership, please call (716) 852-3300 for your reduced ticket purchase code. Tickets can be ordered online here. Street parking is available.
