Rep. Novak Honored by Passage of Frank Lloyd Wright Trail
Bipartisan Legislation Highlights Wright Sites and Brings Tourists From Around the World
Madison…Earlier today, the Wisconsin state Assembly passed legislation authored by State Representative Todd Novak (Dodgeville) that will create a trail through the state, highlighting the architectural works of Wisconsin native Frank Lloyd Wright. Assembly Bill 512 showcases many of the Wright-designed buildings across the state. The new trail will provide a clear guide for tourists looking to visit these sites in communities from Richland County to Kenosha County.
“With this bill, Wisconsin can honor one of its most accomplished residents and invite people from all over the world to enjoy the works of Frank Lloyd Wright,” said Rep Novak.
The bill designates and marks a specified highway route in the counties of Kenosha, Racine, Milwaukee, Waukesha, Jefferson, Dane, Iowa, Sauk, and Richland as the "Frank Lloyd Wright Trail" to identify to motorists the location of specified buildings designed or constructed by Frank Lloyd Wright that are open to the public.
“I’m excited to have the opportunity to show off these extraordinary buildings, embedded in the fabric of our communities, to visitors from across the world,” Said Rep Novak. “I look forward to welcoming its many visitors to Wisconsin.”
