Raising Dough at the Darwin Martin House

Barton HouseFrank Lloyd Wright broke ground for the Barton House in 1903. On June 2, 2012 you can learn the groundbreaking NY Times no-knead bread technique in the Barton House kitchen. If you always wanted to bake no-knead bread and you've always wondered what it would be like to live in a Frank Lloyd Wright house, don't miss this opportunity. In just 2½ hours you will be transformed from a loafer to a baker. And since this bread baking class is also a fundraising event, you will be helping Martin House Restoration Corporation efforts.


About the Barton House

The class will be held in the kitchen of the Barton House. This remarkable home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright was built for Darwin Martin’s sister, Delta and his brother-in-law George Barton. The house was the first Buffalo commission for Wright and the first building designed for the Darwin D. Martin estate at the corner of Summit Avenue and Jewitt Parkway. The Barton House fulfilled Darwin D. Martin's aspiration to reunite parts of his scattered family. It also gave Martin a chance to sample the "brand" of Frank Lloyd Wright before committing to the whole complex. Although relatively small and dependent on traditional frame construction, the house demonstrates all of the Prarie principles elegantly.
