Sites on the
Frank Lloyd Wright Trail
Born in Richland Center, Wright is widely considered the greatest American architect of all time. Wisconsin is home to over 40 of his built works, and the Frank Lloyd Wright Trail includes nine public sites along a designated 200-mile route through southern Wisconsin. All nine sites on the trail are available for the public to visit and tour.
SC Johnson Administrative Building and Research Tower
Visit the only Frank Lloyd Wright-designed corporate headquarters still in use, well known for the Great Workroom. While here you can also tour the Wright-designed Research Tower, which counts as a second stop along the trail.
Johnson Foundation at Wingspread
Designed as a grand residence for the Herbert Fisk Johnson, Jr., family, this elegant four-winged building is now a conference center and offers free tours by advance reservation only.
Frank Lloyd Wright's Burnham Block
An example of Wright’s “American System-Built Homes,” these two homes are the earliest example of dwellings Wright designed as part of a series of affordable mass-produced homes.
Wright’s architectural vision for this Madison community center was first proposed in 1938, and was completed in 1997 with interiors redesigned by Taliesin architect Tony Puttnam.
First Unitarian Society Meeting House
Built in 1951, this building is internationally recognized as an icon of religious architecture. The overall design is triangular, encompassing a soaring auditorium roof, bell tower, and parish hall.
