Kim Bixler’s family owned Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1908 Edward E. Boynton House in Rochester, New York, from 1977 to 1994.  In her multi-media presentation, Kim recounts the joys and pitfalls of owning and living in a Wright-designed home.  Living with the public’s curiosity, playing hide-and-seek, coping with the habitually leaky roof and managing constant renovations make this an unforgettable story.  The Boynton House is one of Wright’s most stunning prairie-style private homes.  During its construction, the world-renowned architect was frequently on-site, supervising all details, including the design of the furniture (seventeen pieces still remain in the house).
