About the Peter A. Beachy House
In 1906 Banker Peter A. Beachy commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to entirely remodel his home (shown above right) from a Gothic cottage into an outstanding example of Wright's prairie design work. The house is set at right angles to the street to utilize part of the cottage's original foundation and take full advantage of a southern exposure. Wright built this house after returning from a trip to Japan, and the exterior has several Japan-inspired elements. The house has seven gables and sits on the largest residential lot in Oak Park. The Peter A. Beachy House is listed as a contributing property to the Frank Lloyd Wright-Prairie School of Architecture Historic District, which joined the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1973.

Note: This event is not wheelchair accessible.
