Muirhead Farmhouse is the only known farmhouse
designed and built by Wright during his lifetime.

surrounded by nearly 800 acres of restored prairie. The home
has been recognized by Kane County, the State of Illinois
and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Muirhead Farmhouse remains in the ownership of the
Muirhead family and is open for tours by appointment. Please
