    About Taliesin

    Taliesin is the home, studio, school, and 800-acre country estate of Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959). Located in the scenic Driftless Region of southwestern Wisconsin near Spring Green, Taliesin is the name of Wright’s home as well as the estate that includes buildings from nearly every decade of Wright’s career from the 1890s to the 1950s. Taliesin has a commanding presence in Jones Valley, the land along Wisconsin River where Wright’s Lloyd Jones ancestors settled after emigrating from Wales in the 1860s. Taliesin was named in honor of his Welsh heritage: The name of a druid bard, Taliesin literally means “shining brow.” Its many wings and terraces reach out to frame the crown of the hill, embracing the site and standing as “brow.”

    About Taliesin Preservation

    Taliesin Preservation is a Wisconsin 501(c)(3) founded in 1990. Its dual mission is to preserve Taliesin’s cultural, built, and natural environments, and to conduct public, educational, and cultural programming that provides a greater understanding of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture and ideas. Taliesin Preservation employs a year-round core team of 20 staff members as well as 40 seasonal staff members who are dedicated to carrying out Taliesin Preservation’s mission. The organization owns and operates the Frank Lloyd Wright Visitor Center, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright as the Riverview Terrace in the 50s and built in 1967 as The Spring Green restaurant. In the Visitor Center, Taliesin Preservation operates the Taliesin Bookstore and the Riverview Terrace Café.

What Others Have Said

  • Kudos to the Chamber and the Small Business Advisory Council for the creation of the Road Construction Survival Guide. It connects the affected businesses with the city departments and the construction company in charge. The regular meetings and contact with the correct people makes a huge difference in coping.

  • My small business has a voice in local politics with the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, I have a voice here. We’re all business people and we look at the bottom line. The return on investment from my Chamber membership and the advocacy it provides is far above what I get from other organizations.

  • The Chamber has worked tirelessly to promote the interests of the local business community, and to create and preserve the conditions that allow businesses to thrive, for the good of the entire community. I can think of no organization that is better equipped to guide us through this time than the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, and we all owe it our full support, to our mutual benefit.

  • The Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce has been an excellent resource for my small business. The Chamber provides multiple channels for business awareness, networking opportunities and helpful educational programs. Being a member of the Chamber has really made a difference in helping expand my business visibility, growth and development in Dane County.
