Frank Lloyd Wright, 1905
Remodeled into apartments, the house received restorative repairs by last private owner Sherri Snyder and was purchased by the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy in September 2000 with the expressed intention of selling the property to a newly created local organization, the Westcott House Foundation. The Foundation has restored the house at a cost of $5,300,000, and opens it for tours Wednesday through Sunday.
