TALLAHASSEE, Fla.(WTXL)- The Spring House Institute in Tallahassee could be in trouble.

It's been listed on the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation's list of the state's Most Endangered Historic Sites for 2015.

The Spring House is the only residence in Florida built by Frank Lloyd Wright, who is known as one of America's greatest architects.

Frank Lloyd Wright built the home for the Lewis family in 1952. He incorporated a nautical theme into the design, derived from the homeowners' love of boats and the family's fondness for the Gulf Coast.

The endangered sites programs is designed to increase the public's awareness for the need to save Florida's most threatened historic resources.
