An American architectural treasure, the Rosenbaum House is the only structure designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the state of Alabama and the only such house in the southeast that is open to the public. The house is an excellent example of the Usonian style and contains furniture designed by Wright.
Built for newlyweds Stanley and Mildred Rosenbaum in 1939, the Usonian designed house originally contained 1,540 square feet, but when the household grew to include four sons, the family called upon Wright to design an addition. In 1948, 1,084 square feet were added. The Rosenbaums were the sole owners and occupants of the house until 1999, when the City of Florence acquired the house and developed a plan to restore it. Dozens of volunteers and professionals contributed to the restoration, and it is now a city museum, open to the public.
Tours are available Tuesday through Sunday. They last approximately 45 minutes and are led by experienced interpreters.
The House is located at 601 Riverview Drive in Florence. For more information, visit www.wrightinalabama.com or call (256) 718-5050.
