FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT’s

WESTCOTT HOUSE T

he Burton J. Westcott House has recently undergone an extensive restoration, returning the historic structure to its original grandeur. The Westcott House, built in 1908, is a unique example of Prairie Style architecture. The Westcott House not only embodied Frank Lloyd Wright’s innovative Prairie School architectural design but also extended Wright’s concept of relating the building to its site by means of a terrace, a pool, gardens, and other landscape elements. An extensive pergola capped with an intricate wooden trellis connects the detached carriage house to the main house, a design element included in only a few other Prairie Style houses. The Darwin D. Martin residence, built in 1904 and located in Buffalo, New York, incorporates this concept. Through the cooperative efforts of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy and The Westcott House Foundation, today The Westcott House is an important rediscovery, a notable, newlyunearthed and revitalized example of Wright’s legacy. The Westcott House plays host to a number of special events and the museum store offers a unique collection of local artisan and design-related gifts. 1340 E. High St. | 937-327-9291 | westcotthouse.org

built in 1879 and returned to active use in 1984. Known for its phenomenal natural acoustics, it has hosted countless musicians, singers and productions.

The Gammon House 620-622 Piqua Place 937-322-8359 Built in the 1850s, the Gammon House was an Underground Railroad site. Originally owned by a black abolitionist named George Gammon, the famous stop features secret passages leading into the attic and a tunnel into the basement. The site is currently under renovation.

South Fountain Historic District Unlike East High Street, South Fountain blends unique mid-sized vernacular houses with high-style Victorian mansions. Prominent Americans like Oliver S. Kelly (403), William N. Whitely (1107), and Francis W. Bookwalter (611) are counted among the district’s founding residents.

This tavern and inn was an important stopover for livestock drovers and pioneers traveling by foot, on horseback or in Conestoga wagons during the 19th century westward expansion of the United States. Closed as an inn after the Civil War, it then served as a doctor’s clinic, boarding house and secondhand shop before falling into total disrepair. The Lagonda Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution saved it from demolition in 1939 and have owned and operated it as a museum since. The Pennsylvania House was the boyhood home of Dr. Isaac Funk, of Funk & Wagnalls dictionary fame, whose parents operated the inn during the 1840s.

The Women’s Town Club 805 E. High St. 937-322-1201 The Buchwalters lived in this home, which is the site of the Buchwalter statue.
