Yesterday morning as I walked into work, I ran into a colleague and, after exchanging the usual pleasantries, she told me about a great story she'd been listening to on NPR on her way into the office. It was about the Ennis House, an iconic Frank Lloyd Wright creation in Los Angeles that had fallen into such disrepair that it was included on our 11 Most Endangered list in 2005. After several years -- and nearly 6.4 million dollars of stabilization and rehabilitation work by the Ennis House Foundation, with our assistance and that of the LA Conservancy and the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy -- the house is now on the market.
NPR correspondent Karen Grigsby Bates shares the story of a house that starred in films, fell on hard times, and is now looking for its Hollywood ending.
