Bernard Schwartz House

The Bernard (and Fern) Schwartz House, also known as Still Bend, is a 3,000 sq foot Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. It is considered to be Wright's Life magazine "Dream House," and is a rare example of a two-story Usonian house. Wright originally developed the design for the house for Life in 1938.[1][2] The Schwartz House is one of the few Wright homes that allow guests to spend the night. This property is believed to have the oldest, continuously operating in-floor heating system in the country.[3]
