Several years ago, the Melin family gave me money and an information so I could plan a visit to the nearby Frank Lloyd Wright creation, Westcott House, in Springfield.
I decided I would go with my friend, Jim Buxton, who introduced me to the world of famed architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. In 2014 I finally visited Falling Water thanks to the generosity of the Houser family as a pre-50th birthday gift.
Jim and I never got around to planning the trip to Springfield. Several weeks ago, Nicole Melin, the originator of this visit, suggested we go over spring break and then we pulled Jim into the mix. It was set.
Although I did very much enjoy touring the Westcott House I was more appreciative of the time spent with Nicole and Jim at our four-hour lunch following the tour.
It was so enriching to share a Frank Lloyd Wright excursion with Jim and I do hope we follow through with our proposed plans to visit Falling Water together, hopefully with the Melin family. Jim is a fount of knowledge and he filled in several informational gaps throughout the tour.
This was another fantastic day!
Thank you, Nicole and Jim, for sharing it with me.
