This is one of my favorite spots in Springfield. It is a fine example of Frank Lloyd Wright's work. The house has been kept as authentic as possible. One interesting feature of the house is the Victorian parlor that is the only remaining room from the structure in its original form. If you are in Springfield during the Christmas season... More

This house really is a treasure, and somewhat of a miracle that it exists virtually intact with most of the furnishings, stained glass, and decorative arts that it had when it was built in 1902-1904. You're able to visit most of the house on guided tours that leave regularly from the visitor's center that's in the adjacent coach house. The... More

This Frank Lloyd Wright house has more original furnishings then any other Wright house in the country. Wonderful lighting, furniture, and pottery. The guides are very knowledgeable and offer insightful stories that are very interesting. While the Lincoln sites are wonderful, you will not be disappointed in this site.

I would give it five stars for myself, but my husband was a little bored with it, so I will bring it down to 4. The art glass throughout the house was beautiful. The tour guide was fantastic and had lots of interesting details about the house, the time period and the original owner. I loved the lines of the... More

Dana-Thomas House is a wonderful piece of history. The great tour guides take you to every part of the house. What I love is the feeling of stepping back in time, to another era. I love to visit at Christmas when every room in the house is decked out for Christmas.

so many times on these tours, they leave out some of the rooms. Here, you see it all. We even went in the basement where they hung all the coats during the parties. Our guide had great stories and created a vivid picture of life here, of the struggles between Dana and Frank, and of the quirky lady who lived... More

An amazing Frank Lloyd Wright House. I rank this as one of my favorite Frank Lloyd Wright tours that I have been on. The tour was very comprehensive and did not really skip any spaces in the very large building.
