About the Martin House
The crown jewel and “opus” of the Frank Lloyd Wright prairie collection, the Martin House is a compelling symbol of architectural excellence, civic identity, cultural pride and sustainability. Nestled in a historic neighborhood in a city with a rich arts and cultural community, the Martin House is often referred to as “the finest restored Wright site in the U.S.”
Considered one of the most important works of the famed architect’s career, the Martin House has achieved international prominence. It has ambitious goals that will impact and benefit all citizens of the city of Buffalo, the region and beyond.
With the major restoration complete and an eye toward the return of travel and in-person experiences, the Martin House is poised for an exciting and explosive next chapter of impact. In this next phase, the goal of the Martin House is to provide innovative and breakthrough programs and experiences that advance the Martin House’s mission and vision in powerful new ways resulting in access and inspiration for visitors from all walks of life and from locations far and wide.
