Frank Lloyd Wright Trail

What is the Frank Lloyd Wright Trail?

The trail is a self-guided architectural adventure featuring these Wright-designed public buildings across southern Wisconsin. The buildings are: 

  • A.D. German Warehouse, Richland Center
  • First Unitarian Society Meeting House, Madison
  • Frank Lloyd Wright's Burnham Block, Milwaukee
  • Johnson Foundation at Wingspread, Wind Point
  • Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center, Madison
  • SC Johnson Administration Building & Research Tower, Racine
  • Taliesin & Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center, Spring Green
  • Wyoming Valley School and Cultural Arts Center, Spring Green

In March 2016, the Wisconsin Act 270 bill was passed to mark a specified highway route in the counties of Kenosha, Racine, Milwaukee, Waukesha, Jefferson, Dane, Iowa, Sauk and Richland as the Frank Lloyd Wright Trail. Funding was allocated to establish highway signs and develop marketing activities to support the trail.

The sites selected for the trail are open to the public and located within 15 miles of the route. Privately owned residences are not included on the trail. 

Consider the trail an itinerary that will help you plan, but please note that it is not a packaged tour. It's up to you to make arrangements at the sites you intend to visit. Bear in mind that each site has its own public hours, and some sites require advance reservations. The Wright Sites section of this website provides contact information for each destination. The route is approximately 200 miles in length.

Is it possible to complete the trail in a week?
Yes!  According to 2019 site schedules, starting at AD German Warehouse and working your way west, one could complete the Trail in a Sunday-Friday timeframe (with Wednesday off). Starting at SC Johnson buildings or Wingspread and working your way east, one could complete the trail in a Thursday-Sunday timeframe. Always confirm tour information on each site's website.
