The Martin House, a six-building complex (1903-1906) now recognized as one of Wright’s greatest early works, fell into disrepair and was partially demolished between 1937 and 1967, years during which the city of Buffalo itself was in drastic decline. This presentation will describe the events and circumstances by which the house was stabilized and restored, and its impact on preservation consciousness in Buffalo, now a city on the rise.

Presented with support from the Regional Arts Commission.
