The Gordon House is the only Frank Lloyd Wright home in Oregon and the only one in the Pacific Northwest open to the public. Guided tours explain Wright's architectural ideas and you come away with an understanding of who he was and what he believed in. Home is located at Oregon Garden and was moved from its original site in... More

We love to visit FLW houses so perhaps we are biased. We found this one also interesting. Part of the appeal is not just the house but the stories of the owners and the demands that Wright puts on his clients. Also, this house was disassembled and moved 40 miles. They offer a film on how it was done. The... More

Wright's home designs are still very modern feeling, even a half century after they were designed. His only home in Oregon is about an hours drive south of Portland. It is 2 story, which is a bit unusual for Wright. The relocated home is nicely sited in a treed grove within The Oregon Garden. His love of wood is shown... More

The Gordon House is the only Frank Lloyd Wright building in Oregon open to the public and it's well worth your time to take a tour. The guide we had was extremely knowledgeable and was able to easily answer any questions that came up. The tour itself is about an hour - which includes an introduction of the house and... More

Set apart from the Oregon Gardens, but outside is easily accessible by foot from an adjoining parking lot.

A little gem which really shows off well. The house has been moved to its present location but it looks like it could have been built there. It shows that Wright did listen to his clients otherwise he would never have designed a master bedroom like this house has.

We were surprised to find this gem. It was not open the day we visited, but we were able to get close and peer through the windows. It was interesting to learn it had been moved from it's original site.

We didn't have time for a tour when we visited the Oregon Gardens, but were told it was permitted to walk around the house and grounds. Even if you don't take the tour, it is an interesting place to visit.

I was fascinated to be able to tour a Frank Lloyd Wright home, to see the inside, with all the built-ins, and to hear the story of this particular house. It was moved onto the Oregon Garden site to save it as a historic home.
