  • 1 Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended

    Museums and art

    951 Chicago Ave USA - Oak Park, IL 60302

    Wright first built this house in 1889 and continued to remodel and add to it over time; his alterations reveal his architectural growth. Restored to its 1909 appearance, when Wright last lived there, the original structure features the horizontal ban..

  • 2 Robie House Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    5757 S. Woodlawn Ave USA - Chicago, IL 60637

    This home made its designer, Frank Lloyd Wright, world famous and helped "break the box" of traditional architecture. The Robie family lived here only for a year or so, after which time the house passed through a number of different owners...

  • 3 Unity Temple Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    875 Lake St. USA - Oak Park, IL

    Frank Lloyd Wright called this Unitarian temple "my jewel," and it's easy to see why. Built for the sake of expense of unadorned concrete, the rectangular interlocking forms contain a worship space and social hall. Framed by rectilinear bal..

  • 4 Arthur Heurtley House Interesting

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    318 N. Forest Ave. USA - Oak Park, IL 60302

    Wright's admired 1902 design here prefigures many of the elements of his 1909 Robie House, including a raised living space curtained by ornate stained glass, a wide roof that hovers above a band of windows, and horizontally textured brick walls. The ..

  • 5 Frank W. Thomas House Interesting

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    210 N. Forest Ave. USA - Oak Park, IL 60302

    Considered the first true Prairie-style house by Wright, this 1901 commission abandons all elements and ornaments of Victorian design. The entrance arch below the main floor leads not to a door but to a staircase proceeding to the hidden entry. Bands..

  • 6 Laura Gale House Interesting

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    6 Elizabeth Ct. USA - Oak Park, IL 60302

    Anticipating Europe's International style of the 1920s, the broad cantilevered planes of this 1909 home also prefigure Wright's 1936 work, Fallingwater. The porches both anchor and expand the living spaces, "breaking the box" of architectur..

  • 7 Nathan G. Moore House Interesting

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    333 N. Forest Ave. USA - Oak Park, IL 60302

    With its steep roofline, Sullivanesque balustrade fence and Tudor Revival style, the 1895 Moore House presents a dramatic contrast to Wright's later horizontal compositions. The house was a remodeling of an earlier structure that all but disappeared ..

  • 8 Pleasant Home (John Farson House)

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    217 Home Ave. USA - Oak Park, IL 60302

    Here's a Prairie-style home designed by another architect, George Washington Maher (1864-1926), whose work can be seen throughout the suburbs of Chicago. He designed the 30-room "Pleasant Home" (aka Farson-Mills House) in 1897 for banker Jo..

    Museums and art

    339 N. Oak Park Ave USA - Oak Park, IL 60302
