Wright in Your Own Backyard

I had been waiting for the weather to clear up so I could take the short drive over to Woodlawn Plantation to view Frank Lloyd Wright's, Pope-Leighey House. Commissioned in 1939 by journalist and author, Loren Pope, this former home survives as an example of Wright's more modestly-designed "Usonian" houses.

The price of admission is $8.50, but for $15 you can also gain entry to Woodlawn Plantation. Each tour lasts about thirty minutes. This is more than enough time considering the floorplan is only 1,200 square feet. Interior photographs are strictly prohibited as a good majority of the furniture is original to the house.
