I've been collecting bits and pieces of information for this local historic "curiosity" for a couple of years. I've always been intrigued that Frank Lloyd Wright lived in Ahwatukee for a short spell near my home and nobody knows about it.

A response this week from C. Ford Peatross, Director of the Center for Architecture at the Library of Congress in Washington DC confirmed the site general location. He provided the late 1920's Maricopa County map showing the site as being slightly north and east of the present day intersection of Chandler Blvd. and 32nd Street.

Find this route a good leg stretcher when you don't have the time to travel to a "real" trail...
