The Hillside Studio & Theater Tour provides an intimate look into 60 years of the life of America’s greatest architect, and the lives of the family who inspired him.

Frank Lloyd Wright first 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.

Some of the highlights of this 1-hour walking tour include:

  • Assembly Hall
  • Hillside Drafting Studio
  • Romeo & Juliet windmill tower
  • Hillside Theater

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.

This is a great introduction to Frank Lloyd Wright’s life, work, and philosophy.
