Frank Lloyd Wright’s North Buffalo masterpiece has been used as an education site for thousands of visitors over the past decade. Now, the Darwin Martin House has a new Education Center in the restored basement.
“It’s really a big deal,” says education director Gina Neureuther. “We’ve been a tour-based historic site,” she says, “but now we have a place that the kids can call their own and create their own learning projects.”
The Learning Center was funded by $515,000 in grants from the Decorators’ Show House of the Junior League of Buffalo and the Buffalo News.
Even before the new space opens, the House has a long record of working with schools and civic groups in many fields, including art, architecture, science and engineering.
Kadimah School of Buffalo is among the schools that have developed a close partnership with the Darwin Martin House. Here is a glimpse of how they worked together.
