Wrightlike Wright in Wisconsin's annual "Wright & Like" house tour is one of my favorite events of the year. The event takes place June 10-12, 2011 in Milwaukee, and the list of homes on the tour this year looks to be a great one! Read more after the jump...

The Saturday tour, as described on the tour website:
"This self-drive tour will include three Wright-designed homes; two American System-Built homes—Model B1 and Model Flat-C—designed in 1916, and an Erdman Prefab designed in 1956—the Joseph Mollica House. All three homes reflect Wright’s life-long passion to develop beautiful, affordable homes for families of modest and average means.
 
Other architecturally significant tour homes are by ‘Like’ architects Russell Barr Williamson and John Randal McDonald; along with the Arts & Crafts and Prairie School inspired designs by Milwaukee architects Clare Hosmer and the firm of Leenhouts & Guthrie. A house designed by Mendel Glickman, a structural engineer who worked with Frank Lloyd Wright, is a Mid-Century marvel; along with an unknown architect whose house celebrates its centenary year with connection to Wright collaborator and interior architect George Mann Niedecken.
 
Join us for this unique opportunity to tour these very special private residences. Guides will be present at each site to present detailed information about the homes, the architecture and their history."
There are also exciting events on Friday night and Sunday afternoon you will not want to miss. Read all about it and get your tickets here.
