Randall Fawcett House, a Frank Lloyd Wright designed Usonian home in Los Banos is a rare example of this design style. Famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed the house set on a farm for Randall "Buck" Fawcett and his wife Harriet, who met Wright while taking an architecture course at Stanford University. Buck Fawcett was recruited by the Chicago Bears in 1944, but instead returned to the Los Banos farm that his father had homesteaded. The 1961 house includes battered and sloped concrete block construction with wings at 60/120 degree angles. It also contains a broad copper fascia and horizontal roof line that lays flat and long. A 12-foot-wide fireplace hearth rises to the left of the entrance of a unique and open space that incorporates 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths.
