TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A famous American architect designed buildings across the country and the Tallahassee area is lucky enough to have one of those buildings in its own backyard.

Spring House was a building designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright and according to the Spring House Institute, it was the only private residence that was built in Florida during his lifetime.

VIDEO: Frost Burke, a board member for the Spring House Institute, joined us on WTXL Midday to talk about Spring House, from it's history to what is happening at the building today.

The house is located at 3117 Okeeheepkee Road, in the Lake Jackson area. The second Sunday of every month, the institute holds a tour of the building and the surrounding grounds from 2pm to 4pm. It costs $15 a person and children under the age of 12 are free.
