"It became clear that there could be no better opportunity for the preservation of this important work of Frank Lloyd Wright than to secure its future stewardship in perpetuity at a public institution with a mission of celebrating American art and architecture, on a site offering the proper setting, and with the capability of providing for its future maintenance and preservation, all of which Crystal Bridges offers," Lawrence Tarantino said in a news release.

The sale of the house includes all the fixtures and furniture designed for it. The museum said it will use a specialized contractor to dismantle the house. Once at the museum, it will be reconstructed to Wright's original specifications. The house will be sit a short distance from the museum along its 3.5 miles of trails.

Arkansas Business will update this story. Below is a video about the house.
