The most personal look at Wright and his work can be found by visiting Spring Green where Wright began building his home, Taliesin®, a Welsh term meaning "Shining Brow," in 1911. This 600-acre estate, which he constantly revised until his death in 1959, represents the evolution of Wright's architectural development which spanned over seventy years...

Wright was born in Richland Center, Wisconsin, in 1867. He spent his youth in Madison, where he attended the University of Wisconsin. It was in Spring Green, Wisconsin where he chose to make his home for most of his life.
