The Robert E. McCoy Architectural Interpretive Center is the starting place for the Stockman House tours and features Prairie School exhibits and a gift shop. Volunteers can help you find more architectural highlights, restaurants and interesting things to experience while you visit Mason City.
The Historic Park Inn Hotel is not a museum, but an operating hotel waiting to be experienced by guests and visitors alike. Docent-led tours will help deepen the experience of your visit as you learn insights into the design and impact of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work and its significance today and explore restored public places of the hotel.
Mason City offers an incredible view into the development of Prairie School Architecture. Just blocks from the Stockman House, the historic Rock Crest - Rock Glen neighborhood comprises the largest collection of Prairie School homes to share a natural setting in the United States. These homes are designed by Walter Burley Griffin, Barry Byrne, Marion Mahony Griffin, and Einar Broaten.
