BUFFALO, NY - Built in the late 1920's as a summer cottage for Isabelle and Darwin Martin by Frank Lloyd Wright, who was of course the architect of their more well known primary digs in North Buffalo, Graycliff represents Frank Lloyd Wright's ideal of a natural house, built with materials indigenous to the surrounding property and integrated into the landscape.

 

The Graycliff Conservancy was formed to purchase the property, and began restoring it to its original state.
And though they're still not there yet, Graycliff's importance has been recognized not only as a New York State landmark, but it's also listed on the national register of historic places.
