National

KIRKWOOD, Mo. (WIVB) — The mark of Frank Lloyd Wright wasn’t just left here in western New York. The architect designed homes across the country, and his influence in architecture has been felt since the 50s.

One of his homes is in Kirkwood, Missouri, in a place called Ebsworth Park. It’s a 1,900 square foot home, and was the first Frank Lloyd Wright home built in the St. Louis area.

The virtual event is called “Preserving What’s Wright.” It will showcase a new building called 100 Above the Park, which was inspired by Wright’s work.
