Frank Lloyd Wright House Arrives in NWA

BENTONVILLE -- Last week, we told you the iconic Frank Lloyd Wright house had been dismantled from its site in New Jersey, packed in shipping containers and headed out for Northwest Arkansas.
BENTONVILLE -- The house is in the house! The warehouse, anyway - and ready to be reassembled at its new home on the Crystal Bridges campus.

Last week, we told you the iconic Frank Lloyd Wright house had been dismantled from its site in New Jersey, packed in shipping containers and headed out for Northwest Arkansas.  It made the 1,235 mile journey and arrived, via shipping services donated J.B. Hunt, Tuesday.

For now, the Bachman-Wilson house, as it's known, will be inspected and stored at a large warehouse before being reconstructed on the museum grounds.

Back in January, Crystal Bridges announced they had acquired the house by the legendary American architect. It had been located in the Borough of Millstone in Somerset County, N.J. Due to repeated flooding, the house has sustained significant damage and relocation has been recommended as a means of best preserving the structure.

In early 2015, the house will be available for study as well as for limited programming and tours.

You can keep up with the progress on the Crystal Bridges website.
