Annie Pfeiffer Chapel is one of 12 structures designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright for the campus of Southern Florida College in Lakeland, Florida. Wright agreed to create a master plan for the campus and to design 18 buildings. Ultimately, the college completed 12 structures. It still owns all the designs.
Florida Southern College, with the most Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings of any single site, was named a United Methodist Historic Site this year.
