While attending the 1950 World Federalist Conference at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, FL, George, and Clifton Lewis of Tallahassee asked Frank Lloyd Wright to design a home for them, saying they “have a lot of children and not much money”. He agreed and the couple located a beautiful five-acre parcel in Leon County on the outskirts of Tallahassee, with a natural spring that flowed from the property to Lake Jackson. Mr. Wright completed the plans in 1952, of an unconventional pod-shaped house described as a passive solar “hemicycle” The house was built in just nine months in 1954. Take a guided tour this unique structure which is the only Frank Lloyd Wright designed home in Florida. Most of the fee for this one-of-a-kind tour goes to the restoration of this local treasure.
