Good example of a Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian home. Open Sundays from noon to 5 April - November. Unfortunately owners subsequent to original owner made some “improvements” that detract from original design and there are signs of a lack of maintenance.

This isn't open very often, but so stop by and check out exterior. It is a lovely Usonian, with great lines. While there is no parking right in front of the house, there is a side street about a block away. Worth the stop.

We visited the Weltzheimer/Johnson House a while ago, but it stands out for us because it was the first Wright house we've seen. Our tour guide was very informative and explained Wright's philosophy and intentions. This home is not so large that we were overwhelmed...More

The house is open and the cost is $5. The website says there are tours on the hour. It seems you may enter and tour the house at anytime from noon until 4 PM on the first Sunday of each month (April - November) with...More

It was closed, but we spent quite a while checking out the house through the windows. Wish it had regular hours all year. Very interesting Usonian FLW house.

While this place is not as impressive as Falling Water, it is a beautiful, clear example of a Frank Lloyd Wright home. His style was unmistakable. After reading some reviews, I was worried about being able to locate the home, but it was very easy....More

Well maintained example of Wright's residential architecture designed for the discriminating middle class taste. Much of the original furnishings are still there or have been repurchased and restored to their original use. House had been home of an Oberlin College art professor, who lovingly restored...More

Enjoyed a tour of this Frank Lloyd Wright building. The curator was well-informed and gave a very interesting presentation of the home.

The google map and Tripadvisor maps will lead you to the wrong place. Use "127 Woodhaven Pl, Oberlin, Oh." in your GPS or mapping search to find the best way here. You will end up at a Cul de sac in a subdivision. The drive...More

If your a Wrightophile but you're not in Oberlin on one of the few days the house is open, don't worry. Like many Usonian houses, the yard facing side is all windows and you can see virtually every room from the outside. Clearly, it's better...More

Cane and walker, definitely, but I doubt a scooter would fit. A portable push wheelchair might work, tho. My daughter uses both, but a cane would probably be best.
