Farms & Orchards

Muirhead Farmhouse is surrounded by nearly 800 acres of prairie. This Frank Lloyd Wright designed home offers a stunning architectural structure for tours.

Located in a rural setting just northwest of Chicago, the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Muirhead Farmhouse is the only known farmhouse designed and built by Wright during his lifetime. The 3,200 sq. ft. home is an example of Wright's Usonian architecture. Designed by Wright in 1950 and constructed between 1951 and 1953, the Farmhouse underwent an extensive restoration in 2003 and now remains in the care of the Muirhead family. The Farmhouse has been recognized by Kane County, the State of Illinois and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
