Architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pope-Leighey House is a 1940s Usonian dwelling of cypress, brick and glass. Originally intended as low-cost housing for the middle class, Wright’s Usonian dwellings featured aesthetically elegant designs made from durable, inexpensive materials. It was moved to the grounds of Woodlawn Plantation in 1964 from Falls Church to rescue it from destruction. Furnished with Wright pieces, the house is utilitarian in structure, but quite beautiful. Combination tickets to visit both Woodlawn Plantation and the Pope-Leighey House are available (adult/child $15/5).
