Oberlin, OH – October 2011 – Weltzheimer/Johnson House

The Weltzheimer/Johnson House in Oberlin, Ohio was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1948. It’s construction was the first Usonian House built by Wright in Ohio.

Interestingly it was built out of redwood, the only Usonian outside of California constructed that way. Wright himself never visited the site, an apprentice from Taliesin lead the construction.

Today it is open for tours on select weekends.
