Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 7, 1976):
A superb example of Wright's organic architecture, growing out of his Prairie Style work, Taliesin was the second great center of his activity (after Oak Park, Illinois). The principal surviving complexes are Taliesin III (1925), Hillside Home School (1902, 1933), and Midway Farm (1938); additions include those done by the students who studied under Wright after the funding of the Taliesin Fellowship in 1932. Wright lived here each summer until his death in 1959. It continues to be the summer headquarters of the Taliesin Fellowship.

Trees are causing severe damage to part of the foundation. The hillside continues to need stabilization.
