Old Quarter – Oak Park

This year’s Wright Plus Housewife takes place on Saturday, May 21, and some old favorites have been sold out as well as some new homes and newfound history.

Wright Plus Co-President Sue Blaine says the walk’s focus on the immediate neighborhood in which Wright lived and worked provides plenty of interesting context.

“You can look at Wright’s private house, which of course was built in three phases, and you’ll see the evolution of its design as you go through the house,” Blaine said. “What’s interesting about this year’s run is seeing the built environment for his work. You get to see what the environment looked like when Wright started and how his work differed so much from what was being done at the time.”
