Kim Bixler recounts the joys and pitfalls of owning and living in a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home. From 1977 to 1994, Bixler’s family owned the Edward E. Boynton House located in Rochester, New York, which was designed by Wright in 1908. Bixler will discuss what it was like to live with the public’s curiosity about the building and play hide-and-seek within the house. She will also explain how her family managed the constant renovations needed during their time of ownership, when the house still contained more than a dozen pieces of original Wright-designed furniture.
