The house at 895 North Forest Road in Amherst was inspired by Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece in Pennsylvania completed in 1937. And it was designed by Sebastian Tauriello, an architect who acquired the Wright-designed Darwin Martin House in Buffalo in 1955 and is widely credited with saving it from the wrecking ball. The Amherst home was built in 1941 and 1942 for Howard F. Stimm, a prominent civil engineer who built railroads and bridges, including one of the Grand Island bridges.
