Second floor of Darwin Martin House reopens to visitors

May 25, 2018

As the last phase of interior restoration, the completion of work and reopening of the second floor of Buffalo’s Darwin Martin House marks another milestone in the ongoing restoration of this Frank Lloyd Wright-designed residence and National Historic Landmark. Local artisans and woodworkers were employed on the project, which included work on the family’s bedrooms, guest suite, servants’ quarters, a sewing room, and Wright-designed built-in furniture and glasswork. Two of the chief woodworkers, Stephen Oubre and Rolf Hoeg, were recognized with the 2018 Preservation Craft award from Preservation Buffalo Niagara. Visitors can take the Martin House Plus tours or attend a specialty tour to see the second floor. View the full tour schedule.
