For over a century, Taliesin and the surrounding Driftless hills and valleys of southwest Wisconsin have served as a laboratory for living. A laboratory where culture, architecture, agriculture, and the natural environment converge around the desire to explore everyday life. Taliesin is the home, studio, school, and 800-acre agricultural estate of American architect, graphic designer, writer, farmer, and educator, Frank Lloyd Wright, located in rural Spring Green, Wisconsin. In 2019, Taliesin, along with seven other Frank Lloyd Wright sites obtained UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, Cultural Organization) World Heritage status as examples of Wright's contribution to 20th-century modern architecture.
About Taliesin Preservation
Taliesin Preservation is a Wisconsin 501(c)(3) founded in 1993. Our mission, as stewards, is to preserve Taliesin's natural, built, and cultural environments through educational and cultural programming to provide a greater understanding of Taliesin’s architecture and ideas. Taliesin Preservation employs a year-round core team of 21 staff members as well as over 60 seasonal employees who are dedicated to carrying out the mission. Taliesin Preservation owns and operates the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center which is the gateway to Taliesin and includes the Taliesin Gift Shop and Riverview Terrace Cafe which is operated in part by our Food Artisan Immersion students who prepare and serve your locally sourced, farm-to-table meal. These students are here to live, work, and study at Taliesin.
The Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center is located 40 miles west of Madison's Capitol Square at the intersection of State Highway 23 and County Road C on the banks of the beautiful Wisconsin River.
