Frank Lloyd Wright’s classic Prairie Style home was designed for entrepreneurs and industrialists Burton and Orpha Westcott. The Westcott House, saved from a looming demolition in 2001, underwent a multimillion-dollar restoration that brought this beautiful complex to its original glory.
The Westcott House is a volunteer-powered, membership-strong, non-profit organization that inspires people to connect with their community in dynamic and powerful ways. Our programs, such as the Summer Tour Series, Design Studio, PechaKucha Nights and Westcott Lecture Series, bring together creative, like-minded people who care about architecture, design, history and preservation. It is a rewarding and fun experience to be part of our family. The Westcott Center for Architecture + Design is also part of the national network committed to promoting innovative architecture and design education for teachers and students in grades K-12.
