These photos are from a recent road trip in the Eastern section of Iowa. We tend to stay away from the main road and interstates in favor of seeing the unknown or occasional roadside attraction. I like to use the site www.roadsideamerica.com when hunting for points of interest. This trip spanned three days and the photos below show the main point of our interest and may include photos from the road along the way. Day 3 included a stop to Cedar Rock, a Frank Lloyd Wright House
As part of the road trip in Eastern Iowa this year, a stop to Cedar Rock was a must. Cedar Rock is the Lowell and Agnes Walter Estate located in Quasqueton, IA. It was built on a limestone bluff overlooking the Wapsipinicon River. Construction was completed in 1950 and the Walters enjoyed the residence for 30 years. The estate was donated to the people of Iowa, through the Iowa Conservation Commission in 1982. Nearly everything at Cedar Rock was designed or chosen by Wright.
