Fodor's Expert Review Meyer May House

Grand Rapids Museum/Gallery

One of Frank Lloyd Wright's enduring architectural masterpieces, this house is among the best preserved of his works. With original furnishings, carpets, light fixtures, linens, and color schemes, it remains largely as Wright and his studio crafted it in 1909. The Prairie-style house was built for a prominent local clothier and is part of the city's Heritage Hills Historic District. Steelcase, a manufacturer of office furniture based in Grand Rapids, embarked on a two-year restoration after acquiring the house in 1985. Trained docents lead the tours.
