I so enjoyed this post! My grandpa was a Psych prof at UW, and my mom and her brothers grew up in the Tudor house to the right of the Buell house (though it was always the Meyer's house to me), so the Airplane house was part of their childhood. My grandparents lived there until I was about 10, so I have fond memories of the neighborhood as well. We met in Madison in May to celebrate what would have been their father's 100th birthday, and we visited the old neighborhood. The current owner of their former house graciously gave us a tour! And we had dinner at Smokey's too!

Kristin — ​Thanks for a great story. It's a pretty amazing neighborhood and there's so many wonderful houses everywhere you look. It must have been a terrific spot to grow up.

That outing looks like a lot of fun. I would love to see more FLW homes/buildings but so far my only explorations are Taliesin West and the Biltmore, in Phoenix.

Rose, Beckie and I thought about the FLW tour when we were driving up. It would be a lot of fun to see these neighborhoods/homes. It is amazing that they are all kept up so beautifully.
Your stop at Smokey's sounds scrumptious.


I love this post and the photos are beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing.


I remember some of these houses from art history class a long time ago. Enjoyed your personal tour and refresher. Susie
