Frank Lloyd Wright spent many of his influential childhood years in Wisconsin where he was born in 1867. Lake Geneva Hotel was the first built hotel by the prominent architect in his home state. There were earlier hotel projects but this was the first designed and built in Wisconsin. The Lake Geneva Inn as it was known was completed in 1912.

Wright would go on to design and produce more than fifty structures in Wisconsin including Taliesin, his own home. Wright's famous landmark hotel, the Imperial Hotel, would be completed ten years later in Tokyo, Japan.
