Your contributions help us fulfill our mission to educate the public about Wright’s architectural principles and to preserve the house for future generations.


A Story in Every Room

The Gordon House is the only building in Oregon designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Experience a guided tour of the home with our knowledgeable and entertaining docents. Feel it’s rich history as you move through each room and learn more about how an Oregon farm family commissioned Mr. Wright to design their new home, the theories, and practices of Wright’s architecture, the near destruction of the home in 2000, and the effort to rescue, dismantle, move and reconstruct the house in Historic Silverton.

“Organic architecture seeks a unique sense of use and a finer sense of comfort, expressed in organic simplicity.”

– Frank Lloyd Wright

In the 1930s Frank Lloyd Wright designed an important series of houses for families of widely varying means that came to be called Usonian, a term Wright used to describe a philosophy of living in harmony with the land he envisioned as unique to the United States of North America, USONIA. These Usonian houses were revolutionary in their time and have influenced modern houses of all sizes and prices since their creation. For many Usonian houses, Frank Lloyd Wright included a wood cutout window pattern unique to the house. These are known as perforated boards and the pattern is the “FRETWORK.”

The NETWORK is you — those interested in the Gordon House Conservancy activities and efforts to preserve the only Wright building in Oregon.

Step Into History

“I’d like to have architecture that belonged where you see it standing and was a grace to the landscape instead of a disgrace, where everybody would have room, peace, comfort, and every establishment would be appropriate to every man.”

Live in your own Usonian Home: Lindal Cedar Homes has partnered with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the School of Architecture at Taliesin to design the Silverton, a translation of the Gordon House floor plan that can be built on your own property.
