  Special Building Tour
Oberlin College's Weltzheimer/Johnson House is a late example of Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian houses. Begun in 1948, and completed in 1950, it is the first Usonian house in Ohio. The goal in these houses was to achieve the aesthetic richness, the sense of connection to nature, and the spaciousness of Wright's earlier Prairie Style house in a small, affordable, and easily built package for the average middle-class family.
