The Johnson Foundation campus is one of inspired design with iconic architecture and lush natural landscape.  Located on 36 acres in Racine, Wisconsin, along the western shores of Lake Michigan, the grounds are graced by natural forest and trails, floral gardens, streams, and a private art collection. 


Completed in 1939, the architecture and design of Wingspread continue to inspire innovation to this day. Frank Lloyd Wright was meticulous in blending the building with the surrounding natural environment to create a truly exceptional, one-of-a-kind experience. Dedicated to The Johnson Foundation in 1959, Wingspread is the centerpiece of our campus and is utilized today for small meetings, meals, receptions, and tours.

Conference Center

In 1959, H.F. Johnson and his wife moved into a new home next to Wingspread. Built by California architect Henry L. Eggers and designed by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, the new residence overlooked Wingspread’s pond and was called “The House.” Its facilities provide a uniquely intimate meeting place for groups. 

Sam and Gene Johnson Guest House

Completed in 2002, the Sam and Gene Johnson Guest House offers world-class accommodations, allowing participants to stay overnight on campus and continue their conversations in an inviting, comfortable and informal atmosphere. The living room is centered around a massive limestone fireplace, flanked by books, and is a popular place for conferees to continue dialogue over drinks and hors d’oeuvres. 


With 36 acres of forests, walking trails and streams, an array of plants and wildlife arrive with the seasons. Walking through the grounds, you’ll also see several art sculptures donated by members of the Johnson Family.  To view our Sculpture Gallery, click HERE
