"It was the 3rd house designed by him in the Twin Cities for members of the Erickson family, who owned a chain of gas stations. The current owners purchased it from Charles Pihl in the mid 1970s and are looking to sell it. It is situated on 12 acres of beautifully manicured grounds in a very desirable community. The house itself may therefore be endangered in the near future. The house construction was supervised by a local architect and some modifications may have been made to Wright's plans. But it is well-maintained and in original condition except for it's fascia, which was replaced/altered after storm damage several years ago. I have included a letter from Lloyd Wright to me in 1974 for anyone interested."

Thanks Anthony, for sharing your wonderful images--hopefully some new stewards for the house can be found. To see all the photos, follow the link.
