Along Wisconsin’s Heritage Trail
For anyone who has ever wanted to take a road trip with Frank Lloyd Wright, the next best thing is now available as a one-of-a-kind experience of Wright’s tremendous impact on his home state of Wisconsin. In March 2016, Governor Scott Walker signed legislation and dedicated $50,000 to create the Frank Lloyd Wright Heritage Trail, a scenic tour spotlighting Wright’s buildings throughout the state. It covers Wright sites from Richland Center (Wright’s birthplace) to Racine (S.C. Johnson Research Tower and Wingspread).
