Frank Lloyd Wright’s Westcott House
Springfield, Ohio
Original Date: 1908
National Register of Historic Places

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Westcott House is the only Prairie School era commission designed by Wright in Ohio. Located in Springfield and built in 1908 for auto manufacturer Burton J. Westcott and his wife Orpha, Wright considered it an important design commission as he selected it to be included in his first monograph of his best designs, known commonly as “The Wasmuth Portfolio.” Following the deaths of the Westcotts, the house had been subdivided into apartments.

Chambers, Murphy & Burge Restoration Architects was retained by the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, who owns conservation easements, to prepare the Historic Structures Report which serves as a guideline for the restoration of the property.

The Westcott House Foundation has retained Chambers, Murphy & Burge and Schooley Caldwell Associates as the architects for the restoration project. The entire restoration will include interior and exterior materials, furniture and landscape.
