  • Beautiful and contrasting histories explained through architecture. Fantastic tour guides. Woodlawn and FLW Pope - leighey tours are sperate and the respective tours are appx. $$. The grounds were free to walk!
  • Beautiful setting just off route 1. Went to a wedding reception here and the location was perfect. If you are looking for a place to have a wedding or something similar defiantly consider this place.
  • Absolutely lovely experience visiting the unique and inspiring architecture of the Pope-Leighey House. Frank Lloyd Wright fans, naturalists, and innovators of any kind will walk away with an immense appreciation for the genius and visionary craftsmanship that went into this home. Don't miss it if you are in the area.
  • As an architect, I was inspired to enter my career by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. Like many other architects, of course. So, I cannot believe that it has taken me a year of living in Washington DC to make it to the Pope Leighey House. I highly recommend a visit to the house. It is very interesting for a work of Frank Lloyd Wright because it is built for an orrdinary, middle-class family. The way that Wright uses the space is fantastic. Like many other Wright works, such as Fallingwater, the house brings nature inside. And somehow he fits two bedrooms, a bathroom, living and dining area including study and kitchen into a small space without things seeming crowded. On the contrary, there is a sense of space, probably because of the way that he uses height such as in the living room. The materials that he uses in the building are also quite beautiful and sometimes organic to the DC area. The house was moved here when route 66 was constructed, and I am really glad that it was preserved. Architect buffs and Frank Lloyd Wright fans should pay this place a visit. The plantation on which is located is also an interesting historical site which I will review separately.
  • Definitely worth checking out :-D the people really know Frank Lloyd Wright and give a fantastic tour!!
