Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pope-Leighey House stands as a classic example of Usonian architecture, a style intended to be both affordable and distinctly American. The Pope-Leighey House was commissioned in 1939 by Loren Pope. In 1964, its second owner, Marjorie Leighey, donated it to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Scheduled for demolition due to highway construction at its original location in Falls Church, Virginia, the house was moved to its current home. It offers a marked contrast to the sprawling Woodlawn Mansion next door.
Open March-December, Friday through Monday: 12pm - 4pm
