1 min read


A Frank Lloyd Wright home in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin is on the market for the first time, listed for $725,000.

The six-bedroom, 6.5-bath house sits on the bluff of a ravine overlooking the Root River and Colonial Park, about 25 miles south of downtown Milwaukee. 

It’s known as being one of Wright’s “largest Usonian homes,” according to the listing. The home, known as the Keland House, was built in 1956. It was commissioned by Willard and Karen Johnson Keland —  the daughter of H.F. Johnson Jr., who for decades served as president of Racine-based S.C. Johnson & Son Inc.
