First Unitarian Society Meeting House

In 1947, Frank Lloyd Wright, then 80 accepted the architectural commission to build the First Unitarian Society of Madison. Society members pitched in to cut costs, hauling limestone from a nearby quarry. Total cost rose to more than $213,000 in addition to $32,000 in donated labor. Two major additions have been designed by Taliesin Associated Architects, the first in 1964 and the second in 1990.
