Local admirers of the legendary early-mid 20th century architect Frank Lloyd Wright are undoubtedly familiar with the Weltzheimer/Johnson House in Oberlin. While Wright is famous for such iconic buildings as Fallingwater in Pennsylvania, Robie House in Chicago, the Guggenheim in New York and Unity Temple in Oak Park, Illinois (where he lived for part of his life and where his home and studio are located).
The Oberlin home is one of his “Usonian” homes, more modest homes intended as for ordinary families. But they reflect his distinctive ideas about how to organize and design living spaces, and provide a chance to learn more about this influential figure.
The Weltzheimer/Johnson home is open for tours the first Sunday of the month April through November with docent presentations at noon, 1, 2, 3 and 4. Admission is $10; free for 18 and under. Reservations are recommended.
