Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Charnley-Norwood House with additional information or photos.
The Charnley-Norwood House was built by the father of American Modernism, Louis Sullivan, and his then-apprentice, Frank Lloyd Wright. After burning down, it was rebuilt by Sullivan with help from Wright.
After being completely destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, the materials were recovered from the nearby woods and painstakingly put back together. The home is remarkably still almost all original. There are free guided tours that are conducted by appointment only.
