Dana Thomas House Decked Out for Holidays
A local treasure is even more fabulous all decked out in the finest of holiday decor.
The Dana Thomas House was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright back in 1902. The famed architect put his spin on it back then, and now a woman named Kathy Leaseman is getting a go at it.
Each of the house's 35 rooms are decorated for the holidays. The tradition was started by a former site manager more than 20 years ago.
"The house is decorated with a number of trees," site superintendent Chet Rhodes said. "And we'll have an event on the 22nd this year, which is Saturday. We call it Luminary, where we have the house surrounded by luminary and we have thousands of people come through the house on that night."
The evening candlelight tour is normally held on the Sunday before Christmas, but they're switching things up this year.
Luminary Night runs from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Dana Thomas House at 301 East Lawrence Avenue. Suggested donations are $10 for adults and $15 for families.
