The Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park (The Kraus House) was designed by Wright in 1950 at the request of Russell Kraus and his wife Ruth. Located in Kirkwood, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, the 1,900-square-foot house is sited in a grassy meadow beside a grove of persimmon trees. The house is an excellent example of Wright’s Usonian architecture, intended to provide middle-class Americans with beautiful design at moderate cost.
Kathryn Feldt is the Executive Director of the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park (Kraus House). She has an extensive background in nonprofit leadership and has had a life-long interest in architecture and design. Ms. Feldt is a native St. Louisan and is proud of the city’s rich architectural heritage including properties designed by Frank Lloyd Wright’s mentor, Louis Sullivan and apprentice, William Bernoudy. She has visited numerous Wright-sites across the county and offers a broad perspective of Wright’s legacy and relevancy to the thousands of visitors who come to St. Louis to tour the FLWHEP.
