The Review, Tidings

A special celebration to commemorate the birthday of world renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright will be held at The Gordon House at the Oregon Garden Saturday.

The Gordon House was designed by Wright in 1957 for Conrad and Evelyn Gordon and built on their Wilsonville farm on the banks of the Willamette River in 1964.

The house is an “affordable” Usonian style home designed as part of Wright’s vision of the Usonian Community that was an original idea of suburbia in America for families of moderate means.

The house will be open for self-guided tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with admission set at $5 per person.

Knowledgeable tour guides will be on hand to answer questions and share stories about this unique house that was saved from demolition and brought to Silverton in 2002 for public exhibition. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is located at 869 W Main St. Silverton. Call 503-874-6006 for details.
