A home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright on Chicago's South Side is being added to an annual tour that serves as the main fundraiser for the celebrated architect's namesake trust.

The Chicago-based Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is putting the Isidore H. Heller House on the list of stops.

It's the first time the 40-year-old event will include the 1897 Heller House. The three-story structure in the Hyde Park neighborhood is a National Historic Landmark.

The tour, dubbed the Housewalk, is in May.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust provides public tours and educational programs at Wright-designed structures. That includes his longtime home and studio in suburban Oak Park.

Wright lived in Oak Park for the first 20 years of his career, between 1889 and 1909. He died in 1959.
