The Oak Park Area’s iconic architecture is not limited to Frank Lloyd Wright. There are other jewels in the crown.
Pleasant Home is another National Historic Landmark in Oak Park and its sweeping front porch, gorgeous entry doors and main room inspired by the Auditorium Theater in Chicago are amazing to witness.

Berwyn’s Bungalows and More is a tremendous way to see how many different looks this treasured style of home can achieve and why it is still so desirable today.
