On the eve of being dismantled, in the midst of a snowstorm, a Frank Lloyd Wright house of rare quality is captured in its original location for the last time.
The 1954 Bachman Wilson House, increasingly threatened by an adjacent river and the changing climate, would be trucked piece by piece from Millstone, NJ, to its new home, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, in Bentonville, AR.
Filmed and Edited by Jon Roemer.
Assistant: Dan Mezick.

Music: Indian Piano Theme by Matthew Morgan.
