In the Village
of Oak Park you'll find many architecturally significant homes,
ranging from Victorian to Prairie style, in two historic districts.
Frank Lloyd Wright lived here from 1889 to 1909. Twenty-seven
of the architect's designs survive here, including his first public
building, Unity Temple.
Oak Park is the birthplace and childhood home of novelist Ernest
Hemingway. An annual festival has traditionally been held to celebrate
his July birthdate.
