Historical Society of Princeton Exhibits Frank Lloyd Wright Drawings


In honor of Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th birthday this June, the Historical Society of Princeton opened its newest display Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: The Architect in Princeton at its Concert Under the Stars benefit on June 10, 2017. The exhibition features architectural drawings by Wright from the Historical Society’s collection, telling the story of Wright’s sole Princeton clients and the Frank Lloyd Wright house that could have been.


After visiting Wright at Taliesin West, his winter home and studio, Princeton residents Mr. and Mrs. Bradford Mills asked the architect to design a house for their property off Pretty Brook Road. Two designs were completed between 1955 and 1957, but, due to high costs, the project was eventually abandoned and the house never constructed. Two drawings that remain (an elevation and floorplan) will be on display at the Updike Farmstead through the end of the year.


The Historical Society of Princeton is just one of many sites currently honoring Frank Lloyd Wright in his 150th year. Often considered America’s greatest architect, Wright designed over 1,000 structures throughout his seven-decade career. Only 532 of these designs were ever completed, but they include some of the most iconic buildings of the 20th century, such as Fallingwater and the Guggenheim Museum.


The museum at Updike Farmstead is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday from 12PM to 4PM, with free hours on Thursday evenings until 7PM. Admission is four dollars.  For more information, visit
