House museums and historic structures are often overlooked as core cultural institutions in their communities—instead playing secondary roles to major museums and larger institutions. Yet, these structures tell us much about the life of a community, through the lives of the people who built the community, who shaped its growth, or who made it rich with culture. Like first-person histories, historic homes give a human dimension to the great forces that shape communities.

Stuart Graff, President and CEO of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, will discuss the role that historic homes and other historic structures play in our community, using the Ellis-Shackelford House (Phoenix) and Taliesin West (Scottsdale) as examples of how understanding these places—and preserving them—tells us not only our history, but also our future.
