If you are into FLW, this is a location with 12 of his structures...they never built the full 18.

Like the title indicates.....if you like FLW there is no location in the world with 12 of his structures in walking distance to each other. We took the In-depth tour, and it was... read more

There was a mixed response from my family. Photographer child and I loved it but other two bored could only walk round building. No information apart from board at front of college.

Even if you are not an architectural aficionado this is an experience worth joining. There are several ways to view the campus. We chose to self tour using the brochure. A definite stop at the gift shop is in order

This campus holds the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture on the PLANET! If you're a fan, they you will be bowled over with the splendor and style of FLW. Even the shaded walkways were designed by the man. As for education, I'm a big fan with my brother, daughter and wife all having been students there. My daughter's... More

It seems strange that Frank Lloyd Wright (FLW) would pick this isolated location in central Florida to design and build a college campus. Florida Southern College, a small liberal arts college in Lakeland, has the world's largest number of FLW buildings in one location. The buildings include administrative, classroom, library and laboratory buildings as well as two chapels. The College... More

I have been a lifelong fan of Frank Lloyd Wright and the Organic Prairie Style design. This place was WONDERFUL!! I learned so much. What amazed me most was the fact that FLW designed a signature "flower" just for this project, only found at Florida Southern and nowhere else in the world. To me, that's pretty damn cool!!

I set up a private tour for an Architect friend in from Germany. Our guide was knowledgeable, pleasant, and patient with a lot of picture taking. She gave a tour to a PhD architect who found it interesting and enjoyable. While I had toured the campus on my own years ago, you need to go on the tour to get... More

Any one interested in Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture should make this a must see location. It is one of the largest if not the largest collection of FLW buildings in the world. We took the in depth tour and we were simply enraptured. The whole campus and the story behind the campus make for a fantastic and wonderful story. This... More

We were looking for something different to do n this was perfect. The Florida Southern College campus is beautiful! Set on Lake Hollingsworth, the campus is a lush botanical garden surrounding some truly unique buildings. We really enjoyed our visit to the Usonian Faculty House. Our guide, Jim, n the 23 min video were sooo informative. Our walk around campus... More

You must visit this college campus. The largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright building in North America. Voted the most beautiful campus of small colleges. Stop by and talk a walk around the campus you will not be disappointed.
