The Dorothy H. Turkel House is a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built in 1955. An example of Usonian design, the house fell into disrepair and abandonment. Recently restored (at a reported cost of one million dollars) it is in the Palmer Woods neighborhood of Detroit, in north-central Detroit.[1][2][3]
