Carroll Alsop House, (also known as Mitchell House) is a historic house located at 1907 A Avenue East in Oskaloosa, Iowa.

Description and history[edit]

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. This house is an L-plan, unless you count the carport, which makes it a T-plan. It was a custom-built house that embodied the ideals of "free and simple living, in touch with nature, for the family of moderate means."[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 9, 1988.[1]
