  • Frank Lloyd Wright Home - Springfield

Dana-Thomas is a magnificent home Wright built way back around 1900. He was given an unlimited budget, and he put it to good use. This house is still as sturdy as he built it over 100 years ago. It has a bowling alley, skylight, library, many different levels in it, the rooms differentiated by lighting. Even the art he put in it is still there.

Suggested donation of $5, well worth it. Tours hourly or so. Nice gift shop too
