The goal was to see the home in which Frank Lloyd Wright designed and lived in from 1889 to 1909 with his wife and children. A beautiful home, see it in pictures and read about it HERE. After my hour long tour, I saw a map in the gift shop that mentioned the rest of the homes in the neighborhood. I had no idea he had designed so many of them! So purchase in one hand, and cellphone in the other, I was off to find my adventure in this Oak Park neighborhood!
First off, the homes here are just gigantic. I can’t imagine what it takes to clean them, furnish them, and make them feel homey when there is just so much space to occupy. What was interesting though is how each home definitely had his feel, but yet they were all so different. He definitely likes using either very firm lines, or he goes completely the other direction with curves and arches. It is literally outside his home, so make a morning or afternoon of it and see the home, then walk the neighborhood. Also there is a sweet park at the end of it, complete with a dedication to the man himself. Check it out and enjoy the pictures.
