The Education Packet is divided into three units covering Frank Lloyd Wright, the Dana-Thomas House, and the art glass designs of Wright. The materials are designed to serve as an introduction to Wright's work and the Dana-Thomas House, prior to visiting the site. The units are best presented in three separate lessons. However, other presentations, based on the needs of the audience, could also be designed. Users are free to copy any and all pages in the Education Packet. Some of the materials might be useful for follow-up activities after the visit.

"In 1902 Frank Lloyd Wright was commissioned to undertake the design and construction of a massive renovation of the Lawrence family home in Springfield, Illinois. The home was to be more than a mere residence -- it was to be a showcase. Upon it's completion in 1904, the new edifice completely engulfed the original home. It immediately became a symbol of artistic and architectural excellence. It now stands as the finest example of the creativity and uniqueness characteristic of the Prairie School of Architecture. The architect - Frank Lloyd Wright - stands preeminent amongst the Prairie Period Architects."

From Governor James R. Thompson's Executive Order 83-4, August 23, 1983

The Dana-Thomas House will be Closed May 28th, in observance for Memorial Day
