Frank Lloyd Wright was a world-renowned architect who did business for years in Mason City.

His crowning achievement in Mason City is the restored Historic Park Inn, a project that cost taxpayers and other contributors nearly $20 million to renovate after it fell into disrepair over the years.

On September 5, 2011, the non-profit owner of the hotel, Wright on the Park, kicked off a week of events to celebrate the re-opening of the landmark with a picnic in Central Park. Tours of the newly-renovated Historic Park Inn Hotel, located at 15 West State Street, were free to the public. Food, music and big crowds teamed with sunshine and a cool breeze to make the event a big success according to event organizers and volunteers.
