This tour provides an intimate look into 60 years of the life of one of America’s greatest architects, and into the lives of the family that inspired him.

Wright designed Hillside in 1902 for his aunts, who ran an innovative children’s boarding school based on the motto “learn by doing.” Wright’s building, as innovative as the school it housed, is situated on land cleared by his pioneering grandparents.

After his aunts retired, Wright re-opened their building and expanded it to accommodate a community of architects and designers ... a community that continues to live and work at Hillside to this day.

Highlights of this tour include the charming, light-filled Assembly Hall, the dramatic 5,000-square-foot Drafting Studio, the Romeo and Juliet Windmill Tower, and the jewel-like Theater. This is a great introduction to Frank Lloyd Wright’s life, work and philosophy.
