Hillside Home School
Hillside Home School was the renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright's first major design. Built in 1886, this was a boarding home for children who received their education in the same building. It was located in rural Spring Green, Wisconsin.
This project was financed by Frank Lloyd Wright's aunts, Jane and Nell Lloyd-Jones, who founded this coeducational school based on a new approach of "Learning by Doing." Frank Lloyd Wright, who was himself homeschooled, supported the apprenticeship model and ultimately converted this school to one for architects in 1928, more than a decade after it had closed.
