Frank Lloyd Wright is arguably the most famous American architect who ever lived. He was a starchitect before starchitects were even a thing and developed the architectural style known as the Prairie school.

His unique buildings are stippled around the country but much of his work, especially in his early years, can be found in Illinois. As such, the Illinois Office of Tourism has unveiled the new Frank Lloyd Wright Trail. The trail, which includes 13 Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings, stretches as far north as Rockford and as far south as Springfield.

Each of the 13 properties along the self-guided tour are open to the public. Some of the highlights include Frank Lloyd Wright’s private residence and studio, the Frederick C. Robie House, and the Unity Temple.
