Spring Green and Taliesin

The campground in Spring Green was beautiful, nestled along the Wisconsin River.

About five miles away is the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center where Taliesin Preservation offers tours of the Hillside Studio / School and Frank Lloyd Wright’s home, Taliesin. A great tour, but also disappointing. First, we were not allowed to take photos inside the buildings where you can really appreciate the concepts Wright was going for. Our tour guide had a grating nasal voice and a very condescending tone presenting each topic along the tour. This would be annoying if she were a master architect, but she was an elementary school teacher and volunteer for the preservation society. Of course, I expect Wright himself would have been even more pompous.

    1. No, I missed that. The infinity room is part of House on the Rock, not the FLW complex. I was so focused on the Wright site I completely missed the House on the Rock. The probably had a way friendlier tour too.
