Buffalo’s Darwin D. Martin House not in running for World Heritage Site Designation.

Eleven Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in the United States have been selected  by the U.S.National Park Service as nominees for UNESCO World Heritage Site designation.  To my knowledge Buffalo, NY’s Darwin D. Martin House was never under consideration.

The 11 properties are:

— Taliesin, Spring Green, Wis.

— Taliesin West, Scottsdale, Ariz.

— Fallingwater, Mill Run, Pa.

— Hollyhock House, Los Angeles

— Frederick C. Robie House, Chicago

— Herbert and Katherine Jacobs House, Madison, Wis.

— Price Tower, Bartlesville, Okla.

— S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc., Administration Building and Research Tower, Racine, Wis.

— Unity Temple, Oak Park, Ill.

— Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York

— Marin County Civic Center, San Rafael Cal

But there is consolation as Fodor’s Travel Intelligence – List of Top 10 Frank Lloyd Wright buildings – includes the Martin Home.
