Top Attractions in Oak Park


Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio

Frank Lloyd Wright lived and worked at 951 Chicago Avenue in Oak Park, IL for 20 years from 1889-1909. At age 22, the  recently married and not-yet renowned architect purchased the land and built the home with a $5,000 loan from his employer, the "father of skyscrapers" Louis Sullivan. The residence is a National Historic Landmark and, thanks to the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust, has been restored to its original 1909 appearance. 

Unity Temple

Unity Temple

The Unity Temple, which is located a short walk from Frank Lloyd Wright's home studio where it was designed, represents a defining moment in the young architect's career and modern architecture as a whole. Considered by many architects to be the first modern building in the world, the church's construction and its challenges inspired Wright; it was during the design of Unity Temple that Wright discovered the true heart of a building lies within its space, not its walls. This would become one of the defining principles of his future work. Learn about the temple's recent renovation here
