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.

While this place is not as impressive as Falling Water, it is a beautiful, clear example of a Frank Lloyd Wright home. His style was unmistakable. After reading some reviews, I was worried about being able to locate the home, but it was very easy....More

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

Open to the public. Must call ahead for hours. Part of the college properties, as is a whole lot of the town!

We were given a 20 minute talk about the house. Then we were allowed to wander the house as we liked. We were told that picture taking was encouraged and looking in drawers and closets was acceptable. So great to be able to do that....More

Is the Welzheimer/Johnson house, which Frank Lloyd Wright was the architect, handicapped accessible by a walker, electric scooter, or a cane?

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.
