What kind of house is worth moving 1,235 miles to become a museum exhibit? According to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, the Bachman-Wilson house, a classic Frank Lloyd Wright design, most definitely is.
Originally built in 1956 on the banks of New Jersey’s Millstone River, the house was repeatedly threatened by flooding. So, in 2013, Crystal Bridges acquired the home, disassembled it piece by piece, and rebuilt it in its new location. It’s open to visitors daily.
