Road Trip: Explore the New Frank Lloyd Wright Heritage Trail

In March, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed a bill to create the Frank Lloyd Wright Heritage Trail. Several of the seminal architect's most renowned structures are on the route, including Taliesin -- his famed home studio in the Prairie School style, with a history both incredibly inpiring and tragic -- and the SC Johnson Administration and Research Tower, a tour-de-force design for corporate headquarters.

"The bill we’re signing into law will help visitors to our state easily identify and find Frank Lloyd Wright landmarks," Walker said in a statement when $50,000 was given to the route's signage. "Wright’s architecture is world-renowned, and these signs will boost tourism even further throughout Wisconsin."

SC Johnson opens its tour season on May 6 with a new exhibit, "Building Relationships: Wright, Johnson and the SC Johnson Campus," showcasing rare Frank Lloyd Wright artifacts and furniture, and art inspired by his designs.

Book your tours ahead of visiting sites, including a guided tour of the SC Johnson campus along with Wingspread, the home Wright designed for H.F. Johnson Jr. and his family. At 14,000 square feet, the Prairie-style house is the largest in Wright's portfolio.
