Gusto's Things to Do: April 30

Graycliff Estate opens for the season

Tours from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 6472 Old Lake Shore Road, Derby. Basic tours are $18 for adults, $12 for students and free for members. Each basic tour lasts 75 minutes.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Graycliff Estate, constructed in the 1920s for the family of Buffalo businessman Darwin D. Martin, was supposed to be a simple, lakeside cottage. The architect had different ideas, and his somewhat grander vision for the complex in Derby is now being meticulously restored.

Visitors can peek at the progress starting April 30, when the complex opens its season of tours. - Colin Dabkowski
