Explore Richland Center
We have 267 miles of Class I and Class II Trout Streams here in Richland County… this is where they get the trout to stock other streams all over the state! Check the Wisconsin DNR guide books available at the Visitor Center for detailed information on trout fishing in Richland County’s cold-water streams. Many public easements and beautiful surroundings make for an excellent fishing experience, and guided tours are available. In addition, we are at the center of scenic Southwest Wisconsin, a land filled with many wonders of nature and history.
Frank Lloyd Wright, widely recognized as the greatest architect of the 20th century, was born here in Richland Center and later lived only a few miles away in Spring Green. There he built Taliesin, his famed home, along with several other homes. He also built a unique warehouse in Richland Center that stands out as one of his early works and the only remaining structure of its kind. The architectural detail of the A.D. German Warehouse is highly reminiscent of a Mayan temple.
