If you are in Lakeland and do not go to Florida Southern College and walk around or take a tour, shame on you. Lovely area. Lovely campus. And you do nto have to be an architecture fan to appreciate FLW. It is especially nice how the newer buildings blend with the original FLW designs.

The buildings are kept very well and the landscaping is all done well. It over looks a lake and feels extremely safe. If you... More

Central Florida abounds in attractions, so this collection of nearly a dozen Frank Lloyd Wright buildings at Florida Southern University in Lakeland, Fla., is easy to miss. However, if you are any kind of architecture fan, this is a delightful opportunity to go off the beaten path and learn some interesting Florida history as well as view the architect's vision... More

The campus of Florida Southern College has the largest collection of FLW structures in one place. It is a beautiful array of buildings, esplanades and grounds. The college is in the process of restoring many of the buildings, and they have just added one new building - a Usonian house that is part of the visitor’s center. The docents are... More

We are huge fans of FL Wright and had visited Taliesin in Arizona, but never come to Fl Southern even though we live in Florida. It was beautiful. I hope they will continue to renovate the property back to it's former beauty.

Must take the tour to appreciate the architecture. Our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgable. Make sure you visit the room where you stand and speak in the middle of the round room. Interesting experience

We had trouble finding the visitors center for this - even though there was no one at all on campus. Never saw a large sign just went into the only thing open. Otherwise, we took the walking tour by ourselves and had a great time. The campus is beautiful (beyond the FLW buildings). We did get to see the dome... More

We had a great tour of the many buildings on this campus. John was our docent and was so passionate about Wright's architecture. We decided to go for the extensive tour instead of the basic and we were glad we did. This is a walking tour and the weather was beautiful. We stayed for the video at the end and... More
