Java with Joe E.: Richard Beatty, “The Darwin Martin House-Frank Lloyd Wright’s Buffalo 1905 Masterpiece”
Thursday, January 26, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
The Holland Land Office Museum is proud to announce its next Java with Joe E. on Thursday, January 26th at 9 am. Richard Beatty will be presenting, “The Darwin Martin House-Frank Lloyd Wright’s Buffalo 1905 Masterpiece.” Admission is free and coffee and donuts will be served. Please contact the museum at 585-343-4727 or email@example.com if you would like to attend.
Richard Beatty, a senior docent at the site, will give a presentation on Wright’s incredible design, his client Darwin D. Martin, and the long history of the complex. Abandoned and neglected during the Depression, taken for back taxes in 1946, and then partially demolished in 1960, the complex of buildings and landscape has been completely restored. Part of Mr. Beatty’s presentation will include a history of the organization that took shape in the 1980s in response to the on-going decline of the masterpiece, focusing on the key role that volunteers play in presenting the site to visitors from all over the world.
