In 1902, Frank Lloyd Wright was commissioned by Susan Lawrence Dana to undertake the design and construction of a massive renovation of the Lawrence family home in Springfield, Illinois.  The original Italianate home is no longer visible from the exterior but a few of its features are still visible inside.  The home was bought and restored by Mr. Charles C. Thomas in 1944.  The Dana-Thomas House is an incredibly well-preserved and exquisite example of Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture. Located on the corner of 4th and Lawrence Streets, the house is just blocks from the capitol and minutes from downtown -- easily within walking distance of the Lincoln Museum in good weather. The home itself is over 12,00 square feet and nothing short of remarkable in every way. Much of the original furniture and art remains intact as it was in the 1900s.  This is a must-see venue if you are planning a trip to Springfield!
