Wright Sites in Montana

Frank Lloyd Wright, the visionary architect behind some of America’s most iconic structures, also left his mark on the breathtaking landscapes of Montana. While sadly, one of his designs, the Lockridge Medical Clinic, was demolished in 2018, the state remains home to a fascinating glimpse into Wright’s early Prairie School style.

Nestled near the town of Darby, the Alpine Meadows Ranch boasts two Wright-designed structures: the Writer’s Cabin and the Farmhouse. Built in 1905, these structures represent Wright’s early forays into the Prairie School aesthetic, characterized by horizontal lines, open floor plans, and a deep connection to the surrounding environment. Originally commissioned as part of a larger unbuilt community, these cabins today offer a unique opportunity to experience Wright’s architectural philosophy amidst the grandeur of Montana’s natural beauty.

About Me

Yvonne Carpenter-Ross

FLW Enthusiast & Webmaster

Architecture and home design have always fascinated me. As a young girl I enjoyed drawing floor plans, rearranging my parent’s furniture and playing with Lincoln Logs and Legos.  My passion has always been the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Since I have been old enough to drive a car, I have visited Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Chicagoland area and attended the Wright Plus house walks. Now, as co-owners of Northern Sky Designs, my husband & I are able to combine our website design skills and FLW travels to bring you this website! Enjoy!
