Wright and Midwest Modern

Over 400 participants, homeowners and volunteers took part in the Conservancy's annual conference in Mason City, Iowa. Highlights of the conference included a benefit dinner at the recently restored Historic Park Inn Hotel and City National Bank (1909-1910) as well as tours of several other Wright structures: Stockman House (1908); Walter House (1945); Grant House (1946); and Miller House (1946). The conference culminated in the presentation of the Wright Spirit Awards, the Conservancy's highest honor, at a gala dinner on Saturday, October 13.

In addition to the architectural tours and evening events, 16 speakers presented on topics ranging from the funding challenges involved in the restoration of the Historic Park Inn Hotel and City National Bank to the influence of other Prairie architects in Mason City and the Midwest.
