Do you love architecture? Of course you do! Do you love money? Of course you do!
That’s why it’s important for you to know that tomorrow you can tour the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio in Oak Park for the low low price of… free! It’s a bargain at twice the price!
The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is having a whole day of free events and tours to celebrate the first tour it gave way back in 1974, when a stamp cost 10¢, a gallon of gas was 53¢, and milk, surprisingly, wasn’t all that much cheaper than today: $1.39/gallon.
But don’t take our word for it (about the tours, not the milk). Here’s the press release straight from the foundation:
