This was a very beautiful house . Frank Lloyd Wright was very creative when designing this house. Beautiful windows very inventive lighting. Much of the original furniture. Very sad history behind the woman who commission the house.

This was only the second Frank Lloyd Wright home that I've visited (so I am no expert) but it was amazing! The owner of the home was a strong woman with requirements of her own that caused Wright to modify his design. So, while his...More

Blown away. The Dana-Thomas house is a structural piece of art! The stain glass throughout the house (doors, windows, lamps, lights) is amazing. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and friendly.

One of Wright's different type of house. Lots to see in a little place. Would have like to see the carriage house.

I love seeing the Frank Llyod houses. This is the 4th one I have seen. It can give you some ideas to try when you get back home and how advance the houses were back in thoses days.

I was blown away by this home, which was built in the late 1800s. My initially bored children were also drawn in and appreciated the history and themes throughout the house. My favorite room was the library! Highly recommend visiting.

The site is open year round Weds.-Sun. and seasonally Mon. & Tues. The website doesn't say when the seasonal ends. The best thing to do is call 1 217 782-6776. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
