Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1948, the Weltzheimer/Johnson House is the first Usonian house in Ohio. Usonian refers to a group of about 50 Wright homes designed for middle-class Americans following World War II. These houses are typically modest, single-story dwellings without garages, L-shaped to open into the landscape, and environmentally conscious. The houses have flat roofs and large cantilevered overhangs for passive solar heating and cooling, naturally lit clerestory windows, and radiant floor heating.
