The First Unitarian Meeting House of Madison was designed by Frank Loyd Wright, famous architect. It is an excellent example of many of his building's typical traits: natural materials, simple design, open spaces, "compression" in the entryway, opening up to a large, expansive space inside....More

Went to just take some pictures and ended up going on the hour-long tour. Super interesting facts about the property, Wright, Madison, and the church were presented. It was a great experience.

Part of the Frank Lloyd Wright trail in Wisconsin and worth the visit. Be sure to check the schedule so you can take a guided tour. Some of the ceiling in the church are in need of repair, but a must see for FLW fans.

Disclaimer: I grew up in this meeting house when it was new. Weathered and troubled now, it remains magnificent, expressing so many of Wright's deepest held beliefs about art and nature and what a spiritual place should be. It is an expressive building, a must...More
