The only Frank Lloyd Wright house in Oregon, this one is well worth a tour. Beautifully restored downstairs, with all original upstairs--gives a great feeling of having been lived in. Tour guides provide insights into Wright's design philosophies and obsessions, which can then be seen in practice. Reservations required. Very close to the Oregon Garden Resort motel.

We had a great visit to the Gordon House. My son is interested in Architecture and that is why we made the trip to see the house. It was interesting and the tour guide was nice. We had also planned to visit the gardens while were there but it was a rainy day . It is a bit out of... More

Frank Lloyd Wright designed only one house in Oregon, the Gordon House in Silverton. It's a short drive from Salem and well worth visiting at any time of the year. The house is stunning and tour guides are most informative. The house was moved to it's present location block by block, and a most interesting video which documents the move... More

What a treat! What a gem to have this historic house, now a museum, as part of the Oregon Gardens. The house is a piece of art with a very interesting story behind it. I highly recommend a tour The Gordon House, especially if you have any interest in architecture or engineering. As a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright this... More

If in the area make this a priority, even if you are not an architecture historian. You will learn about Frank Lloyd Wright and his wonderful attention to detail and utility. Our guide was knowledgeable and welcoming; answering questions clearly and happily.

The Gordon House is located just outside Silverton adjacent to the Oregon Garden and Resort. You must make advance arrangements (in the morning for the same afternoon in our case) to tour the house, but it is well worth the $20. Built by Wright for a gentleman rancher on the Willamette River, it was moved by a conservancy organization to... More

The house was very interesting as a fine example of the brilliance of the man. The docent was very knowledgeable and happily answered everyone's questions.

The Gordon House is the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in Oregon. In 1956 Conrad and Evelyn Gordon commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design a house for their farm on the Willamette River in Wilsonville, Oregon. Construction was completed in 1964 after the death of Wright so he never had the chance to visit the finished house and design furniture... More

My husband and I were visiting the Oregon Gardens on Saturday and decided to stop by the Gordon House. It looks very interesting from the outside. There is a lot of glass, so you can see a lot on the ground floor just by peering in. However, it would have been nice to get inside, and in fact, the sign... More

The Gordon house is the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in Oregon. It is a very interesting story on how Mr. Wright worked with the Gordons to design the house at the advanced age of 88. The house itself is pretty small and while you are welcome to wander the house after the tour you most likely will not feel... More
