Fantastically Restored Example of Wright's Work
juli 2021
The house, as could be seen in a video, was deteriorating badly when the foundation bought it, and spent $5.8 million and countless hours of volunteer time restoring it. The place is now beautiful, outside and inside. Not overly furnished, by a long shot, but then Wright never meant the house to be stuffed with furniture. You see the basic design of the place and a few of the pieces of furniture he designed for it, all very impressive. The tour and the story from the guide was great (the 3 pm tour that day, July 31, Saturday), very interesting.

A great example of FLW's Prairie School style of architecture. Interesting concepts and a beautifully designed home and furnishings.

Beautifully Renovated Frank Lloyd Wright House
mars 2021
We've visited several Frank Lloyd Wright sites and visited this one as the pandemic restrictions started easing.

Wescott House is likely the high point in Springfield, Ohio, about halfway between Columbus and Dayton. The Wescott family made a fortune in agricultural implements and dabbled in making cars, and hired Frank Lloyd Wright to build this home for them. It fell into disrepair as the family's finances deteriorated, but has been lovingly restored.

It is now staffed by knowledgeable and enthusiastic fans. We toured the house with a guide who was actually an architect himself. Unlike other FLW houses, they freely allow photographs of the interiors.

Whether or not you might want to live in a house like this, you have to admire the craft and ingenuity, and the exterior is unmistakably his.

There is an excellent gift shop with all kinds of unique items.

The day we were there they sold out of tickets. It's easy to book ahead of time online and we'd recommend your doing so to avoid being disappointed. There is easy parking practically next to the building. There is also a kind of sad graveyard across the street - sad because many of the gravestones are badly damaged or missing.

We greatly enjoyed our time here and would highly recommend this site if you are anywhere nearby.

Another FLW masterpiece
aug. 2020
It's a nice visit if you're into architecture and specifically FLW and his masterpieces. The house is kept in great condition and the tour guides are very knowledgeable, always willing to answer questions and provide more information on demand. I loved that I could take pictures inside unlike some other FLW homes I have visit.
My only critique is that the souvenir shop wasn't that well stocked; I would have loved to see more items specific to Westcott House as opposed to generic unrelated items

FLW - Must See
sep. 2020
Still basking in Wright’s brilliance. Wescott House has made us “Prairie Style” fans. Admittedly, my immediate family are “Wright Heads”, this tour does not disappoint. We also brought some family members who have not experienced a Frank Lloyd Wright house, we may have a new convert.

The tour- superb. Worth the ticket if you appreciate art, architecture, American talent, garden tours, history. The guide, Jim?, was entertaining, informed, patient and a FLW fan. Every time I go on one of these tours I am more in awe of Wright’s genius.

Another Great FLWright Story
aug. 2020
Group of seven for the 1:00 tour. Tour started on time with a knowledgeable elderly lady who was eager to share. Great tour with great information on how Westcott came to be. It was some of FLW earlier works so you don’t see some of the “bells and whistles “ you normally see with FLW, but impressive what the they did to get this FLW home up and running for the public. Only downside, albeit minuscule, gift shop somewhat overpriced, no purchases here. I recommend, thumbs up.

Beautiful house but get your tickets ahead of time
juli 2020
A very handsome residence and fine example of prairie style, Unfortunately we went on whim while we were in the area and you are not allowed into the museum or to take the tour unless you have tickets already. With Covid and all the changes it has brought about this is totally understandable but be aware and reserve your tickets before you make the trip.

A Masterpiece

This was an exceptional choice to visit. Fabulous example of Prairie architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright. Our host was a very accommodating guide. Very informed and did not rush the tour. Gift shop got me closer to finishing my Christmas shopping. lol
