Oh, and also Woolaroc (, the Frank Phillips estate, (Phillips 66) near Bartlesville, Oklahoma is well worth taking a south loop. While there, another must-see is the Price Tower in Bartlesville, Frank Lloyd Wright's only sky-scraper design that was actually built. Visit it on Friday evenings and go up the tiny elevators to the bar and grill on the 16th floor. And do it in time to watch a spectacular western sunset from his famous frameless, wrap-around windows.

Emily Schatz, I live in Akron and was at Stan Hywet today, Friday, Aug 24, with my grandkids. There were several questions in a "lift the flap" format on the wall in admissions and one of them was, "How much did it cost to build?"! With furnishings, around $825,000+. It truly is a gem, and the grounds are beautiful with the ponds and areas further from the house as well.

Whilst I understand the confusion about Colorado and the Midwest. The article is subtitled, “Mountains, Plains and Midwest. The article is not stating that Colorado is in the Midwest. Even reading the first paragraph, one might make that mistake again, however, it too does not imply that Colorado is a midwestern state.
This being said, all the sites are unique and it would be an interesting trip.
