Bauhaus, More than a Band: Gropius House

Not too far away from my undisclosed location in the Merrimack Valley is the Gropius House. Built in 1937 by Walter Gropius, he and his family lived in the Lincoln Massachusetts home while he was on faculty at Harvard. Mrs. Gropius lived in the Bauhaus style home until her death in 1983. Two years later the house, now a national landmark, is open for public tours.
