The Lewis House, also known as Spring House, is an historic home in National Trust for Historic Preservation describes its significance: "The novel hemicycle form of Spring House represents a late, and little-known, stage in Wright’s long, prolific career. Although there are approximately 400 intact houses attributed to Wright throughout the country, only a fraction were from his hemicycle series."
Over the past few decades the home had come into disrepair and with bricks falling from their mortar and wood rot. An institute was formed in to protect the house in 1996 but the first work project was not started until January 2013.
On April 18, 2012, the AIA's Florida Chapter placed the house on its list of Florida Architecture: 100 Years. 100 Places.
