  • 2. Spring House • The spring house is one of Tallahassees greatest architectural attractions. Designed by the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and being the one and only of his designs in the state of Florida, the spring house attracts its fair share of art and architecture enthusiasts, and also general people just looking to see a piece of such groundbreaking architectural design live in person. The unique circular edges, and ship-like structure making this house a real sight to see.
  • 3. The Spring House is a nonprofit institution, that was constructed in 1952. Prior to being a local attraction toured by the public, the site originally acted as a home to a small family- The Lewis’. The only daughter of the Lewis family is incidentally the tour guide you are sure to meet when checking the place out.
  • 4. Not only is the ship-like design of the exterior view of the spring house unique, but the interior of the house is just as exotic, containing a living area with a built in fireplace (which was quite a luxury during the time it was built), a kitchen, and a whole upper level consisting of a balcony overlooking the living area, bedrooms and bathrooms.
