Westcott House Foundation (The)
Springfield, OH

One of Frank Lloyd Wright's most important contributions in Prairie Style architecture, the recently restored 1908 Westcott House is truly an architectural treasure. It is important to note that it is the only example of Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie Style in Ohio. The Westcott House was designed and built during "the first Golden Age of Frank Lloyd Wright," as described by respected historian Grant Carpenter Manson. Many scholars consider the early years of Wright's long career to be his most significant architectural period.

The Westcott House Foundation was established in September 2000 to manage the restoration of Frank Lloyd Wright's only Prairie Style home in Ohio and to develop The Westcott House as a museum and educational center. The house, fully restored and hailed by many as a forgotten architectural treasure, opened to the public on October 15, 2005.

One of the Foundation's primary goals is to establish The Westcott House as a "must-see" destination for the benefit of community and state, architectural enthusiasts, and the general public.
