Taliesin III at Taliesin in Spring Green (1925). The first house was built in 1911 and lasted three years. In 1914, a disgruntled/insane employee set the house on fire and murdered everyone in sight with an ax, including Wright's wife Mamah. Taliesin II lasted until 1925, when an electrical fire burned much of the residential structure. The studio portion of his property was never damaged in any of the fires and still survives today.
