Purpose sought for Frank Lloyd Wright warehouse

RICHLAND CENTER, Wis. (AP) - Efforts are under way to find a use for a 16,000-sqaure-foot warehouse in Richland Center that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

The four-story brick and concrete building has seen little use for more than 25 years. The Wisconsin State Journal reports retired banker Glenn Schnadt bought the building for $90,000 last month with the intention of holding it until a community group could raise the money to buy the historic structure, the only warehouse designed by Wright.

Local historian Lon Arbegust says potential uses include just about anything except a warehouse. He's helping to form a nonprofit to buy the building from Schnadt. He says ideas have included music studios, office space and a brew pub. There's also is talk of a gift shop.
