Oak Park is known particularly as the home of Frank Lloyd Wright from 1889-1909, and holds the largest concentration of Prairie School architecture in America, including 25 designs by Wright. The Village has three historic districts – The Ridgeland/Oak Park Historic District, Frank Lloyd Wright-Prairie School of Architecture Historic District and Gunderson Historic District. These areas, comprising approximately a third of the Village, are locally designated and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Oak Park also has 11 buildings and one park listed on the National Register, in addition to more than 70 locally designated historic landmarks.
