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.

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.

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

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.
