Walk Wright into eight Oak Park homes next month

Beachy House, Oak Park IL

Even if you aren’t in the market for one of the five Frank Lloyd Wright-designed homes currently for sale in the suburbs, you still might be interested in seeing some of Wright’s homes (and a few inspired by Wright) up close.

The 37th annual Wright Plus, which is billed by its promoter as “an internationally renowned architectural housewalk featuring rare interior tours of eight private homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and his contemporaries” has been scheduled for Saturday, May 21, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tickets are $85 for members of the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust and $100 for non-members, along with a $5 handling charge. Member purchases are limited to four tickets.

Hoping for a student / senior / child discount? Forget it. And forget bringing along children under 12 — they’re not allowed on the tour.

Prepare to stand in line at some of the homes, especially during mid-day hours, and watch yourself being line-jumped by people who paid $2,350 (member) or $2,600 (non-member) for the Ultimate Plus Package.
