Lloyd Wright-Rosenbaum House
601 Riverview Drive
Florence, AL 35630
The Rosenbaum House is
the only Wright-designed structure in Alabama.
It was built in 1939-1940 for Stanley and Mildred
Rosenbaum who were the sole owners and occupants of
the house until 1999 when the house was purchased by
the City of Florence.
The house is
constructed of cypress, glass and brick and has all
the hallmarks of Wright's Usonian style...flat
multi-level roofs, cantilevered eaves and carports,
flowing space, use of natural materials and expanses
of glass. Wright designed an addition to the
house in 1948, adding two wings.
The house has been
meticulously restored. The City of Florence
received the 2004 Wright Spirit Award in the Public
Domain from the Frank Lloyd Wright Building
Conservancy for the preservation of this important
architectural gem. The house holds its original
Wright-designed furniture and is open as a city
