Overview
More
Taliesin, the home, studio and country estate of Frank Lloyd Wright, is located in the hilly Driftless Region of southwestern Wisconsin near Spring Green. It is the name of Wright’s house as well as the 800-acre estate that includes buildings from all decades of Wright’s career. Taliesin has a commanding presence in Jones Valley, the watershed where Wright’s Lloyd Jones ancestors settled after immigrating from Wales in the 1860s. Taliesin was named in honor of his Welsh heritage, was the name of a druid bard, and literally means “shining brow.” Its many wings and terraces reach out around the ridge of the hill, embracing the site and standing as “brow.” Taliesin was the principal residence of Wright as a mature designer, and the valley was his inspiration and life-long laboratory for architectural designs and innovation. Taliesin in its three iterations (1911, 1914, 1925) represents the most complete embodiment of Wright’s philosophy of Organic Architecture. The Taliesin residence is the heart of a series of buildings that Wright designed for himself and his family members on the estate. Other buildings include: Romeo & Juliet Windmill (1896), Hillside Home School (1903), Tan-y-Deri (1908), Hillside Drafting Studio (1932), Midway Barn (1949), Hillside Theater (1952), and the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center (1967).

What a great tour. I have seen other FLW tours. This was the best. It was personal, and the setting was exquisite. We saw the last tour of the season, and would go back to see the gardens in full bloom.

FLW is a personality that just gets more complex the more you discover. To understand him and the American-ness of his startlingly original art, you can do no better than visit this place. The images and the experience will easily become part of you. I...More

Estate was beautiful and the tour guide was especially informative and helpful. Gift shop had a nice selection of items. Wish we could have had time to enjoy a meal at the cafe. The water view from dining area was beautiful.

I did the 2-hour Taliesen house/studio Tour in early November and it was wonderful. I'm sure it's also great in the spring and summer, but with no leaves on the trees, you could see more of the family land surrounding the home. Cait was an...More

No. The only way to visit is to go on a tour that costs $30.
