"This morning as I walked to a meeting in the carriage house, the sunshine was streaming through the pergola. At the end of the meeting, the sun was still rising from the east. How lucky to be able to stop and appreciate these moments." – Danielle, Martin House staff member

Join us for a tour over the next few beautiful days. We even stay open late on Thursdays for self-guided tours!  Note: Sunday we are hosting Familia Fun Day so there are no public tours available (but join us for the free community event!)

Plants look more lovely, Wright claimed, when presented in the content of the clean geometric shapes of a building and its extensions. 

One of these extensions is the urn.The Martin House is home to 13 Wright-designed urns, in full bloom even as we enter fall.

Remember that the grounds are always open as we enjoy beautiful fall days such as this one. And better yet: plan a visit to step inside and surround yourself with Wright's magnificent designs.

Meet Jeanne from Wyoming. Jeanne was in town visiting her brother and saw our post from last week sharing that we had  welcomed visitors from 49 states since reopening on April 1.

We just needed a visitor from Wyoming to hit the 50 state target, and she decided to make it happen! Woo-hoo!! πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘

If you haven't visited, what are you waiting for? We are even open late for self-guided tours on Thursdays so cancel today's plans and make your reservation at martinhouse.org/tour

Today, as a nation, we pause to pay tribute to the achievements of American workers. The image of the Martin House construction crew from 1904 is one of our favorites, and Labor Day is the perfect time to share it.

This year, we want to say a special thank you to the essential workers across our great nation who continue to show up, work hard, and serve their communities during these challenging times. We appreciate you more than you know.

During reconstruction of the pergola, conservatory, and carriage house, great care was taken to produce Roman bricks to the same specifications of the brick used during original construction.

Clay was sourced from the same region, custom molds were built, and the bricks were fired at different temperatures to create the variety of golden tones of the bricks – a result from the coal-firing in beehive kilns so long ago.

Visitors unfamiliar with our restoration and reconstruction story don't even see the difference.

All of this is why it’s only fitting that we call our annual brewfest Bricks & Brews! Join us for the outdoor event on October 2 from 2-5pm. Sample craft brew from 17 regional breweries while you enjoy the views.

Ticket and sponsorship info at link in bio

Just like the Martin House, the staircase in the Barton House is not obviously visible from the entryway. The journey up the stairs is gradual with turns, leading to a beautiful 2nd floor landing complete with art glass windows and lamp.

The Barton House – and the Gardener's Cottage – is explored on a two-hour Martin House Plus tour. Schedule today at martinhouse.org.

Since reopening on April 1, the Martin House has welcomed visitors from 49 states – including many of our wonderful friends & neighbors from the Buffalo region – for tours, concerts, community events, yoga and more.

Buffalo is a great place to live, work, and visit. Plan your September trip now. (c'mon Wyoming!!) The fall colors in Western New York can't be beat.
