Explore Oak Park's Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District

The Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District of Oak Park has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1973.  With more than 20 buildings designed by Wright and over 80 other buildings designed by his students and followers, it draws people from all over the world who want to see the Prairie style of architecture. Some of Wrights earliest works are here and span several decades of his influence in Oak Park.  

The district is not only Prairie Style buildings though.  Classical Revival, Italianate, Bungalows, and Brown Stones are all represented in the 1,500 building that make up the entire district which spans the area from Harlem Avenue to Clyde Street and Division Street to Lake Street.  

Some of the Wright designed home in the area include Mrs. Thomas H. Gale House, Nathan G. Moore Residence, Arthur Heurtley House, Frank Thomas House, Edwin H. Cheney House, George Furbeck House, and the Oscar B. Balch House along with the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio and Unity Temple.  Walking tours or bike tours are the best way to see the area.  And while most of the homes remain private residences, one a year the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust hosts the Wright Plus Tour where some of the homes are open to the public.
