Where to Find Frank Lloyd Wright Homes Near Nashville

If you're anything like us, then you likely love Frank Lloyd Wright's incredible architecture. We take a lot of inspiration from the clean lines and natural elements of his homes and buildings, but it wasn't until recently that we learned that there are a few FLW sites within driving distance from our hometown of Nashville. 

If you love design and you're looking for an out-of-the-ordinary road trip destination, then you might want to consider planning a design road trip to check out a Frank Lloyd Wright home. Here are a few FLW spots within a few hours of Nashville to add to your summer road trip bucket list.

  • The Seamour Shavin House
    334 North Crest Road, Chattanooga, TN
    Around 2 hours driving

    This private residence was built in 1950 for Seamour and Gerte Shavin, and it's the only Frank Lloyd Wright building in all of Tennessee. It's built of treated Louisiana cypress wood and a similar stonework to Wright's famous Fallingwater, and it offers incredible views of the  Tennessee River and Lookout Mountain.

  • The Zeigler House
    509 Shelby Street, Frankfort, KY
    Around 3 hours driving

    This is the only FLW building in Kentucky, and it makes a fun little pit stop if you're heading up north. It's a private residence that someone still lives in today, but it's a great example of Wright's "prairie house" style.

  • The Boswell House
    8805 Camargo Club Drive, Indian Hill, OH
    Just over 4 hours driving

    This L-shaped home is one of our favorite FLW houses. It's located just north of Cincinnati, and it's one of the few FLW houses that was still inhabited by the original owners (up until a few years ago, at least). The Boswell house was built in 1957, and it still has all of the incredible mid-century built-ins and textiles.

The Gerald Tonkens House
6980 Knoll Rd, Cincinnati, OH
Just over 4 hours driving
It's one of many FLW houses in the Cincinnati area, but it's definitely one of the coolest. The exterior of the "Usonian Automatic" home is made of concrete blocks and more than 400 windows, and the interior is made up of detailed ceilings, an open layout and original mid-century furniture.

  • Fallingwater 
    1491 Mill Run Rd, Mill Run, PA
    Just under 9 hours

    This one is a far one, but if you're making the drive to a Northern city like Pittsburgh, New York or Philadelphia, it's well worth the stop to see the most iconic home in American history.
