As the sun goes down and the stained glass lights start to glow, Wright’s classic design transforms into a site full of drama. Our Happy Hour Tour will let you explore this extraordinary house while enjoying some delicious wine and appetizers.
Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Westcott House for entrepreneurs and industrialists Burton and Orpha Westcott in 1906-08. This beautiful home, saved from a looming demolition in 2001, underwent a multimillion-dollar restoration that brought this beautiful complex to its original glory. Explore Wright’s revolutionary ideas that today can be enjoyed by the public through a very limited selection of the sites from this period.
The Westcott complex consists of the main house, garage, pergola and perennial gardens. Reservations are required.
$45 per person. Happy Hour Tour fee includes a docent guided tour, a short documentary, wine, sparkling wine and light hors d'oeuvres.
You will start your tour in the original garage located at 85 South Greenmount Avenue, Springfield, Ohio 45505. Please use this address for directions. There is plenty of street parking available along South Greenmount Avenue.
