This unique Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) residence was designed for Buffalo businessman Darwin D. Martin and family between 1903–1905. Recognized as the most substantial and highly-developed Prairie House of Wright’s portfolio in the Eastern United States, the Darwin Martin Complex received National Historic Landmark status in 1986.

The fully-restored complex is controlled by a highly-advanced, integrated, environmental, intrusion detection and fire/life safety system covering five connected buildings: the Darwin D. Martin House, a pergola, a conservatory, a carriage house with chauffeur’s quarters and stables, and the George Barton House (a smaller residence for Martin’s sister and brother-in-law). A separate gardener’s cottage was added in 1909.

Building operations are monitored for problems by a 24/7 central station. Critical alarms are transmitted electronically to alert personnel to any equipment failures, safeguarding this historic treasure for all to enjoy.
