I enjoyed visiting Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian Pope-Leighey House. The house was built originally in Falls Church, VA, and moved to this location when I-66 was built. It had to be moved again 30 feet to the east (or west) due to the layout of the land causing problems. This house was a Usonian design, built for a middle class family. The exterior and interior were built with cypress, a sturdy wood that withstands the elements. The floors were cement with heating coils under it. There were 2 bedrooms, a very small kitchen, a small office, and a LR/DR. In keeping with FLW the house is simple and the house design itself is all the decorating needed. I could not imagine living in it today but it would make a great vacation home in the mountains or on the beach.
The docent was very knowledgeable and friendly.
This would not be an easy site to visit if you needed a wheelchair for mobility.
