Alden B. Dow House and Studio

315 Post St., Midland, Michigan



The architecture of Alden B. Dow received national attention from his very early career through to his late period, partly because he was closely associated with Frank Lloyd Wright. The body of his work is of rare quality and completeness and remains highly original among the contending forces of 20th century architecture. The house and studio are his most clearly acknowledged masterpiece. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, June 29, 1989
