Sharon and Janie's Wichita Weekend - Day 2

Sharon, Janie and Mary toured the Frank Lloyd Wright's Allen House. Commissioned in 1916 and completed in 1918, the house is named after its first owners, newspaper publisher Henry Allen and his wife, Elsie. It was the last of the architect's famous prairie houses, which emphasized horizontal lines, earth tones and a continuous blending of interiors with exteriors.

Sharon bought a book of all Frank Lloyd Wright's buildings that are open for tours. Talking to her on the phone, she suggested that we start a quest to visit all of them.

After lunch at a wine bar, they toured the gardens at Botanica. Sharon noted that it was hot, but not as humid as she feared.

They finished the day cooking salmon at Mary's house.
