Taliesin was the 600 acre estate owned by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright, located south of the village of Spring Green, Wisconsin.

After having an affair with Mary (Mamah) Borthwick, Wright left his first wife Catherine Lee Tobin, and designed Taliesin, where he and Mamah would reside. 

Many of Wright’s most acclaimed designs were created there, and although beautiful, the property was home to a brutal massacre. One afternoon, a butler working for Wright set fire to the property and then took an axe to the residents of the estate. He killed 7 people, making it the most murders committed by one civilian at one place and time in Wisconsin history. 

With all the violence and turmoil that took place on the property, it is said to be haunted by restless spirits to this day.
