The Westcott House is the only Prairie style house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the state of Ohio. The grounds include the main house and a garage with pony stable connected by an extensive pergola.
In 1946, the house was divided into multiple apartments and no longer reflected the vision of its architect. In fact, much of the original furniture and most of the original light fixtures and other details were removed from the house. In addition, a severe lack of resources led to an extreme deterioration of the structure.
Recently, the house underwent a comprehensive restoration and all of its features, from art glass to original hardware and hand-decorated furniture, have been rebuilt according to Wright's specifications, and the gardens have been re-landscaped to reflect the style from Wright's era.
Take a guided tour of the Westcott House and learn about the Prairie Style home Frank Lloyd Wright designed for industrialists and entrepreneurs Burton J. and Orpha Westcott and their two children.
The Little Miami Scenic Trail winds along the Little Miami River and stretches for over 70 miles, through woodlands, countryside and towns alike. The trail passes through Yellow Springs, Xenia and Waynesville, before it reaches downtown Milford.
You can bike part of the trail or saddle up for the entire journey. Whatever you decide, there's plenty to do along the way. For example, two state parks, John Bryan and Caesar Creek can be reached from the trail. Other sightseeing options include the Xenia Station and the Ft. Ancient State Historic Site.
Built in 1886 as the City Hall building, this magnificent structure is now the residence of the Clark County Heritage Center. Many exhibits are permanent while other exhibits are changed regularly.
