Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for Conrad and Evelyn Gordon and built in the Wilsonville area in 1964, the Gordon House is an “affordable” Usonian style home. The home represents Wright’s vision of the Usonian Community that was an original idea of suburbia in America for families of moderate means.
