Mission Statement

To preserve, protect, and interpret the structure, its evolution, and the property on which the House is located. To interpret the design and construction of the building and its ownership by Susan Lawrence Dana in the period 1902-1943, concentrating on the years 1905-1906. To relate the preservation and evolution of the structure and the site during the time of ownership of Mr. and Mrs. Charles C. Thomas and the Thomas Publishing Company.

Description

The Dana-Thomas House was designed by noted American Architect Frank Lloyd Wright for socialite Susan Lawrence Dana of Springfield. Planned, designed, and built in the period of 1902-1904, it is one of Wright's first majoy prairie-style houses and certainly one of the most elaborate in terms of size, detailing, art glass and furnishings.
