The Center provides a home for the permanent display of photographs, furniture, and drawings depicting Wright’s 20-year relationship with Florida Southern College. The Center also acts as a home for visiting exhibits on loan from various other Wright sites.
In 2012, the Florida Southern College Historic District was designated a National Historic Landmark by the National Park Service of the U.S. Department of the Interior for being the largest single-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture in the world. The site features 13 Wright-designed structures, 12 of which were built during Wright's lifetime and under his supervision.
The site is perhaps the most fully articulated expression of Wright's vision and features several unique pieces of Wright history, such as his last specially commissioned stained glass work, his only constructed planetarium, his only theatre-in-the-round, and more. Free self-guided tours available or hear the fascinating stories behind these stunning works on a docent-led tour, starting at $7 for a basic tour.

Beautiful, safe campus with great faculty and class offerings.
One of the best Colleges around. They have so much student involvement in the community and its so great to see how passionate everyone is about there careers. The facilities themselves are Clean and well laid out. Students are taught real life scenarios that they will come upon in their workforce. They have a variety of programs so there is certainly something for everyone. I highly recommend to look at this place if you are going into college.
