Tours of old-fashioned houses teach visitors about an antiquated lifestyle absent of running water, electricity, and furnaces fueled by Red Bull. Learn about an old-fashioned way of living with today’s Groupon to The Gordon House. Tours of The Gordon House are conducted daily from noon to 4 p.m. Choose from the following options:

  • For $20, you get an individual membership (a $45 value).
  • For $35, you get a family membership (a $75 value).
  • For $50, you get a Friends of Frank Lloyd Wright membership (a $100 value).

The Gordon House’s staff of docents guides visitors and conservatory members through 45-minute tours that divulge the strange-but-true history of the only building in Oregon designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. As tour leaders recall Wright’s theories and organic approach to architecture, guests observe rooms that seamlessly segue into one another due to the lack of doors and a deep distain for knock-knock jokes. After surviving near deconstruction in 2000, The Gordon House relocated to the next-door Oregon Garden.

Each membership to the architectural gem comes with its own set of perks and privileges––individual members receive solo access to The Gordon House throughout the year, while a family membership allows visitation privileges to two adults and four relatives under the age of 18. The Friends of Frank Lloyd Wright membership grants holders two adult admissions and entry for four tagalongs, in addition to discounts at other Wright sites, including other homes designed by the artist and the tree trunk where he hibernated during winter. Members of all levels receive free visits and tours of the house, as well as discounts for retail purchases in the gift shop and on special events throughout the year.

Frank Lloyd Wright – Gordon House

The striking horizontal planes of Frank Lloyd Wright's Gordon House bisect the landscape just beyond the foliaged outskirts of the Oregon Garden, drawing eyes to the architectural marvel like moths to an octogenarian's birthday cake. Guests who tour the stunning abode watch from inside as sunlight falls in squares on the floor, filtered through geometric cutouts in the ceiling. Docents expound on the genius of Wright's design and theories during 45-minute guided tours of the architect's only Oregonian creation.

Groups meander through the kitchen, where skylights light up scarlet countertops, reflecting the undertone of western-red-cedar cabinets. Natural light creates abstract patterns on the floor through a series of perforated wooden window treatments, and an experienced guide imparts factual tidbits regarding the home's history, such as its origin story, its near deconstruction in 2000, and its subsequent rescue by a motherly wolf and her pack. Guided tours are conducted daily from noon to 4 p.m., and reservations are required to view this rare home that was designed in the traditional Frank Lloyd Wright fashion—with a pencil—and also with impressive angles and seamlessly organic landscape integration.
