The Jewel In The Woods

Jewel In The Woods

The Jewel In The Woods is the tumultuous story of Seth Peterson, a Frank Lloyd Wright devotee, and his dream of building and owning a Wright-designed home. The home fell into disrepair and was triumphantly rehabilitated in the late 1980s. It is one of Wright’s last designs and also one of his smallest, at a mere 880 square feet. According to former Wright apprentice and architect William Wesley Peters, the cottage is said to have “more architecture per square foot than other buildings” he knew.
