Near Spring Green in Iowa County, Wisconsin — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Frank Lloyd Wright
Among Wright's many innovations were the pre-fabricated house, gravity heat, indirect lighting, concrete block as an effective building material, and revolutionary engineering concepts such as the earthquake-proof structure. Shortly before his death in 1959 at the age of 90, he designed a mile-high office building.
Colorful non-conformist, believer in beauty, and champion of democracy, he scorned all criticism. "Early in life," he said, "I had to choose between honest arrogance and hypocritical humility. I chose the former and have seen no reason to change."
Erected 1964 by the Wisconsin Historical Society. (Marker Number 134.)
