I'm speaking of the Lowell Walter House (also known as "Cedar Rock") in Quasqueton, IA, an amazing residence designed by Wright in 1948. Today, its owned and operated under the auspices of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and open for public tours.

However, as I learned recently from "The Friends of Cedar Rock", state funding is tight and the money available to this important Wright site from both the state and the Walter Charitable Trust are dwindling. With the need to keep the site running, pay for maintenance, staff and the hopeful restoration of the Walter River Pavillion, help is needed now more than ever for this fantastic work of Organic Architecture.

Please consider a trip to Cedar Rock to see how special it is for yourself. Plan on attending "An Afternoon With Frank Lloyd Wright" this year on Saturday October 29, 2011 at the American Legion Hall in Quasqueton to help raise funds. And, if nothing else, donate a little towards the cause to keep this house open and available for enjoyment for years to come. Find out how by contacting Pat Schmitz at Pat.Schmitz@dnr.iowa.gov.
