Orpha Westcott's Story is the result of the author's work as a docent for the 1908 Frank Lloyd Wright Westcott House in Springfield, Ohio. Being a Wright fan, more about the owner's choice of Wright as an architect was intriguing. Further research indicated it was Orpha Westcott who actually worked with Wright in designing the only Prairie Style.house in Ohio. She was a woman ahead of her time, an independent thinker whose insight created a piece of Wright history.
