House on the Rock astounding, fun Wisconsin family attraction

The House on the Rock is an astounding and unique destination with something for everyone in the family. This “eccentric architectural and entertainment attraction” has long been a southwest Wisconsin tourist attraction.

The House sits on Deer Shelter Rock, a column of rock approximately 60-feet tall, 70-feet by 200-feet on the top, which stands in a forest. Additions were made to the original structure over the course of several decades beginning in the 1940s.

House on the Rock

This sprawling complex of unique structures, rooms, streets, and gardens was designed by imaginative architect  Alex Jordan, Jr. (1914-1989).

“One thing just sort of led to another,” Jordan, an imaginative architect, said.  And staying true to his feeling that “more is not enough,” he continued adding “room after room filled with some of the world’s more unique, eclectic and whimsical collections,” according the brochure.

One of the most intriguing spaces is “The Infinity Room.”  It juts out 218-feet from the house, without supports underneath. The room has more than 3,000 windows and is considered to have one of the best views in the world.
