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. Usonian, built in the early 1950s, is now 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 Sunday-Thursday by appointment only. Please allow one-hour for your tour. Outdoor s
hoes are not allowed inside the home.
