The Hillside Studio & Theater 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 who inspired him.
Frank Lloyd 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 is housed, is situated on land cleared by his pioneering grandparents.
Some of the highlights of this 1-hour walking tour include:
17 years 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.
Please note this tour does NOT include a tour of the Taliesin house.
