The Currier Museum is adding a second Frank Lloyd Wright home to its collection.

The museum announced Friday that it purchased the Toufic H. Kalil House on Heather Street in Manchester. The concrete and glass structure is down the street from the Wright-designed Zimmerman House, which the Currier has opened for tours since 1990.

New Hampshire may not be a hotbed of modern architecture, but in the quiet North End neighborhood in Manchester, there are not one, but two Frank Lloyd Wright houses on the same street.

That’s the result of one family, the Kalils, being inspired by another family, the Zimmermans.
