Holiday Open House
“On Christmas Morning we would run eagerly to the playroom fireplace where we had hung our stockings the night before. They were always filled with candy, spiced cakes, cookies, and surprise packages.”
- John Lloyd Wright
Wright’s son John recalled family holidays at the Oak Park Home – a tree in the playroom fully trimmed and surrounded by gifts, handmade cards by Wright’s sister Maginel, and stockings hung from the mantel, “the day flew by in its festive noise, everyone full of smiles.”
You are invited to join the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust for a celebration of the season. Bring your family and friends for a free tour of Wright’s Oak Park Home, decked for the holidays with a spectacular tree, poinsettias, fresh flowers, evergreens and wreaths in keeping with the Wright family tradition. Enjoy hot chocolate and cookies, family craft projects in Wright’s Studio, and Neighborhood Shopping Specials with free gift wrapping.
