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

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.

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

This house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright is worth visiting. You can take a tour of it every first Sunday of the month (except during the winter months) and learn about its architecture and history. Because the house is not a museum -- it is...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.
