An exclusive dinner and tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s extraordinary Southern plantation.
March 5, 2016
Yemassee, South Carolina

Nestled in the lowlands just outside of Beaufort, South Carolina is a hidden treasure, a plantation unique to the South. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1939 for C. Leigh Stevens, Auldbrass consists of a main house, kennels, stables, a barn and various outbuildings. It served as a self-sufficient modern plantation for farming, hunting and entertaining. Joel Silver, a successful movie producer and admirer of Wright, purchased the plantation in 1987 and, with the help of Wright’s grandson Eric Lloyd Wright, meticulously restored the estate. Very rarely open to the public, this extraordinary example of historic preservation will be open for a tour followed by a gourmet dinner and fine wines courtesy of the Conservancy’s official sommelier, Robert Volz.

Attendance is strictly limited and all proceeds benefit the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy. Tickets are $1,500 per person ($1,250 is tax deductible). Due to the exclusive nature of this event we are not able to provide refunds for cancellations received after February 12 unless the reservation can be refilled.

Out and About Wright: Arkansas
April 15-17, 2016

Mark your calendars for a spring visit to Northwest Arkansas, where the Conservancy will partner with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville for an educational symposium and tour of Wright’s Bachman Wilson House (1954), which has just been reconstructed on the 120-acre museum grounds after flooding forced the house to be moved from its original location in Millstone, New Jersey. We will also tour the work of Wright apprentice, Arkansas native and AIA Gold Medal winner architect E. Fay Jones. Watch for details this fall.
