Have you ever heard the scary story of Frank Lloyd Wright’s home, Taliesin? Wright built the home Taliesin in 1911 to share with his lover, Mamah Borthwick. In September of 1914, Wright was in Chicago and Borthwick and her two children were staying in Taliesin.

While the household ate dinner a servant, Julian Carlton, locked all the doors and windows and set the home ablaze. He stood outside the possible escapes with a hatchet and murdered the household as they fled the house. In total eight were killed, with only two survivors.
