OUR NEXT AULDBRASS TOUR IS SCHEDULED FOR
About the Plantation:
Although Frank Lloyd Wright designed over 1000 projects during his long and prolific career, Auldbrass in Yemassee, South Carolina, is the only plantation among them. It is also one of the largest and most complex projects he ever undertook. Wright had an unusually intense commitment to Auldbrass, and worked on it, off and on, for over twenty years, from 1938 until his death in 1959. Because Auldbrass was private and fell into disrepair in the 1960’s it was rarely photographed or published, and as a consequence, little has been known about this major work. In 1986, film producer Joel Silver bought Auldbrass, and with the help of Eric Lloyd Wright, the grandson of Frank Lloyd Wright, he meticulously restored this stunning architectural gem. (Please note, this is a self guided walking tour of the expansive grounds of Auldbrass Plantation.) Click on the following link to read a New York Times article about Auldbrass.
