The Dana-Thomas House Garden Walk

University of Illinois Extension, Dana-Thomas House, and The Elijah Iles House Foundation are co-sponsoring "Walk in the Gardens of Historic Homes." This walk featuring the Dana-Thomas House and Elijah Iles House will be held on Sunday, June 8, from 1 to 4 p.m.

U of I Extension Master Gardener volunteers will be stationed throughout the gardens to answer questions regarding plant selection and care. Volunteers at the Dana Thomas will point out the themes of the home and how Susan Lawrence Dana's and Frank Lloyd Wright's lives and careers relate to design and planting decisions.

Dana-Thomas House is located at 301 E. Lawrence Ave., Springfield, IL. The Elijah Iles House is located at 628 S. 7th St., Springfield, IL. Both home will also be open for tours. The event is free and open to the public.
