Frank E. Wetherell was an architect in the U.S. state of Iowa who worked during 1892–1931. He founded the second oldest architectural firm in the state in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1905.[1][2]

He was a parishioner of St. James Episcopal Church (Oskaloosa, Iowa), which he designed in Gothic Revival architecture.

He worked also with Oliver O. Smith, and with the addition of Alvah J. Gage the firm became Smith, Wetherell & Gage.[2](p16) The firm continued later as Smith & Gage.

Wetherell was prominent statewide as an architect known for public buildings, residences, and urban planning. At least 44 extant properties in Oskaloosa, Iowa are attributed to him.[2]

A number of Wetherell's and the firms' works are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).[3]
