The murders surrounding Frank Lloyd Wright and his home in Wisconsin Taliesin.
Wisconsin in August the closing of summer, getting ready for the winter months that are ahead. Mr. Wright is in Chicago preparing to build yet another great architectural wonder. One can only presume the days events on August 15th 1914, the fact is 7 lives will be lost forever. The Taliesin a beautiful home nestled on the brow of a hill. The name Taliesin in welsh meaning “Radiant Brow” the Welsh heritage taking us back to times of old. The Taliesin was built in Wisconsin a land that the Welsh Ancestors started settling decades earlier. The ancestors of Frank Lloyd Wright, thus you have the name Taliesin.
The sun starting to set the work day coming to a close. The family and friends of Mr.Wright prepared for dinner. Julian Carlton a hired servant and his wife a cook preparing the evening meal. One can only wonder the thoughts, the reasons why 7 people would have to die. The 9 men, women and children sat down for an evening meal the meal that would be their last supper. The group sat in 2 separate rooms as Julian Carlton served dinner he turned to ask Mr. Weston for some gas as he claimed there was a stain on the carpet.
Frank Lloyd Wright leaving 6 children and his wife to be with Mrs. Mamah Borthwick. they travel Europe and settle in Wisconsin to build the Taliesin. Life is good the community has more or less accepted the fact that Mr. Wright and Mrs. Borthwick were unwed. The fact that at that era of time a woman was considered to be a mans property. The fact that Mrs. Borthwick was married to another did not phase the Mr. Wright.
Julian Carlton locked all the doors and started pouring gasoline. Through the cracks and splashing gas everywhere one can only imagine the horror that would follow. The house was going up in flames like an inferno so quick, so hot. There was no where to run as Mr.Fritz jumped through a window only to see Julian wielding an Ax. Laying in shock as he watched Mr. Brodelle come crashing out the same window only to meet Julian. Wm. Weston followed Mr. Brodelle almost simultaneously Carlton striking Mr. Weston with the axe.
Mr. Weston getting and running for his life with Carlton chasing is struck again, falling down. Falling down is what saved his life Carlton turning heads back to finish his killing any other survivors. Mr. Weston getting up disoriented runs, finding David Lindblom on fire. Helping Mr. Lindbolm they run and are able to escape, telephoning for help. Seven people lay dead, the Taliesin burned but not destroyed.
