    S.C. Johnson Wax

    by RACCOON1 Updated Sep 30, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Racine, Wisconsin is the home of S.C. Johnson Wax a company that was founded in 1886 .

    Wisconsin is Frank Lloyd Wright territory so it seems fitting that the Johnson Wax Admin Building shoudl be designed by F.L. Wright.

    The building was completed in April 22,1939 , the same year as the New York Worlds fair, and is compared to the fair . Thus it is viewed as an attempt to predict what was to be in the future . In some ways it was very close.

    Free tours a re offered ,and reservations are recommended. Times are 11:00 and 1:15. We had no reservations and got in .
