The Jack Lamberson House, also known as the "Maunu house", is a historic residence located in Oskaloosa, Iowa, United States. It is one of seven Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Usonian houses located in Iowa, and one of two that were constructed in Oskaloosa.[2] Both were completed in 1951. The Lamberson house is unique from the other Iowa Usonians for its extensive use of 60-foot (18 m) and 120-foot (37 m) angles. It features a low, sweeping pitched roof that makes the house look deceptively large, yet it is the second smallest of Iowa's Usonians.[2] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]
