If you live in the Midwest, and have been putting off a visit to the Dana Thomas House in Springfield IL, you better not put it off much longer.

The idiots (I should apologize, but I won't) in the Illinois government are balancing their budget by closing numerous sites and state parks including Frank Lloyd Wright's Dana Thomas House.

Here is a list of ALL the closings. There are LOTS of places.

The LAST TOUR of the house will be on October 15, 2008, and from what I can gather, there is no intention to continue any viewings of the interior after this time.

Here is the Dana Thomas website for more info.
