The John and Catherine Christian House, commonly known as SAMARA named for the winged seeds found in pinecones), is one of the most complete Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the United States. Nestled in one of Indiana’s most historically significant cities, the 2,200 square-foot SAMARA was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 2015. The home affords national and international visitors of all ages the rare and immersive opportunity to experience Mr. Wright’s fully realized Usonian design just as if they were guests of the family.
Linda Eales is the Curator of the John E. Christian House, SAMARA, in West Lafayette, IN (T5405). She has held this position since December 2007. Starting in 2002, Linda began volunteering as an Interpreter for SAMARA, under the direction of Dr. John Christian, an original client and owner of the home. She worked with Scott Perkins, Director of Preservation at Fallingwater to prepare our successful Historic Landmark nomination.
Linda holds a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from the University of Illinois, Champaign. She studied Art History and Architecture which contributed much to her education. When she is not working, she loves to read, travel, and learn.
