House on the Rock
5754 State Road 23
Spring Green, Sauk County, Wisconsin
The House on the Rock is a complex of architecturally unique rooms, streets, gardens, and shops. The "house" itself is atop Deer Shelter Rock in a nearby forest.
Designed by Alex Jordan, Jr. and opened in 1959, the house is said to be similar in design to the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright.
Additions were made to the original house, and other buildings were added over the course of several decades.
The complex now features "The Streets of Yesterday", a re-creation of an early twentieth century American town; "The Heritage of the Sea", featuring nautical exhibits and a 200-foot model (61 m) of a fanciful whale-like sea creature; "The Music of Yesterday", a huge collection of automatic music machines; and what the management bills as "the world's largest indoor carousel."
