RIVERVIEW TERRACE RESTAURANT (1953 - S.367)
   
Date: 2016

Title: Riverside Terrace Restaurant Exterior 2016 (1953 - S.367).

Description: 1) Set of 35 exterior and 11 interior
photographs, photographed on June 10, 2016. Originally designed in 1943, modified in 1953, construction began in 1957, but was halted upon Mr. Wright’s death. It was resurrected again in 1967 as part of The Spring Green Resort complex, Modified and completed by the Taliesin Associated Architects, headed by William Wesley Peters. To support the restaurant’s 300 foot length, steel trusses were salvaged from the flight deck of the Ranger aircraft carrier training ship which was used on the Great Lakes during WWII. The restaurant opened in October 1967. Located just a stones throw from Taliesin, it became the Visitors Center in 1993. On a trip from Chicago to Seattle with my son-in-law, we stopped to tour Taliesin. The tour began at the Riverside Terrace Restaurant. Riverside Terrace Restaurant Exterior 2016 (1953 - S.367). Viewed from the South. Frank Lloyd Wright’s initial designs showed the Entrance from the Terrace on the left. Alterations brought the Entrance to where it is today. During the 1970s, the Terrace was enclosed.
