Benefit to Help Preserve Pope Leighey House
Mark your calendars for a June 10 evening to benefit the preservation of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pope-Leighey House, which was completed 71 years ago (1940) in Falls Church. The Usonian house was moved to Woodlawn Plantation in Alexandria in 1964 to make way for I-66 and was the first of only three Wright homes built in Virginia. The evening at the house, which belongs to the National Trust for Historic Preservation, will feature martinis, passed hors d’oeuvres, a risotto bar and DJ. Here are the details: Friday, June 10, 2011; 7-10 p.m.; $75 per person. For more information call, (703) 780-4000.
