#2 of 14 in Things to do in Oak Park
More than 100 years after its dedication, Unity Temple is at a critical crossroads. Water infiltration has caused extensive damage to the concrete structure and interior finishes over the years, and the building urgently requires a multimillion-dollar rescue effort. In 2009, Unity Temple was named to the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.

  • This is a review of the Frank Lloyd Wright tour. The building is really beautiful and well worth the visit. Our tour guide was really informative and spent about 40 minutes with us. He also let us know that since he volunteers the fee from our tour goes into maintaining the handful of Wright buildings that are part of the Trust.
  • Great building by FLW. Definitely worth visiting if you’re in the area.
  • Beautiful church designed by FLW. Unique design. Interesting history.
  • Certainly my favorite Frank Lloyd Wright building in the Chicago area. Pretty unimpressive from the outside but amazing on the inside. Some design magic accounting for budget, requirements, innovation and aesthetic. Great restoration.
  • Wonderful restoration! Tours will be resuming in July! IMPORTANT NOTE: A church calls this building home, so it is NEVER open for tours or visitors on Sundays. If you only have time for tours on the weekend, be sure to go on a Saturday.
