"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
