Mary Lintern and Deborah Weinkamer from James A. Garfield National Historic Site revisit two of these most infamous murders of the previous century.

By coincidence, both of the “Crimes of the Century” involve a famous (and famously caddish) architect, their mistress, and a madman. Discover how the love triangle between the world’s first supermodel Evelyn Nesbit and two millionaires, Stanford White and Harry K. Thaw, ended in a shooting atop one of New York City’s most famous landmarks.

Then learn how several members of Frank Lloyd Wright’s family and staff came to a horrific end while in Taliesin, one of his most famous homes.

Discover Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright is America’s most famous architect. He innovated the Prairie and Usonian styles of design and planned hundreds of structures that dot the country (including Lake County).

And his life is as fascinating as his architecture. Both his tempestuous relationships with women and the murders at his Taliesin estate were headline fodder during his lifetime.

Learn about Wright’s work and life from architecture enthusiast and our Executive Director Cheryl Kuonen. She has studied Wright and visited dozens of his designs across the continental United States.

By the way, if you want to learn even more about Wright, we have several books and documentaries about him that you can borrow.
