A story in every room: The Gordon House, the only building in Oregon designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, offers guided tours of the interior of the house. The tours are conducted by knowledgeable and entertaining docents who will cover the theories and practices of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture, the story of how an Oregon farm family commissioned Mr. Wright to design their new home, the near destruction of the home in 2000 and the rescue, dismantling, moving and reconstruction of the house in Historic Silverton next door to The Oregon Garden.
