Rockford's only Frank Lloyd Wright home up for auction


A small, yet significant, home goes up for auction next week in Rockford…and a group of preservationists is racing to come up with the money to ensure it becomes a community centerpiece. WNIJ’s Susan Stephens has more on the house Frank Lloyd Wright called his “little gem.”
