Carpenter Street Hotel

The original Carpenter Street Hotel opened its doors in February, 1997, primarily to cater to the patients and families visiting world-renowned Prairie Heart Institute at St. John’s Hospital and other healthcare facilities, including Memorial Medical Center and SIU School of Medicine. Since that time, we have become a preferred destination for all travelers visiting the Springfield area, whether for business, pleasure or both.

In the summer of 2010, Hotel Ventures Management, the premier hotel management company in the Midwest, became a business partner with an affiliate of Hospital Sisters Health Care System as both the manager and co-owner of the Hotel. As you will see in the photo gallery, our facility has been fully-remodeled and now provides the most comfortable contemporary rooms and amenities that Springfield has to offer. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit.

At Carpenter Street Hotel, we go above and beyond in caring for our guests.

We look forward to serving you on your next visit to the Springfield area.

Dana Thomas House Foundation & Sumac Shop
301 E. Lawrence Ave.
62701

The Dana-Thomas House (DTH) was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1902 for Susan Lawrence Dana, a forward-thinking socialite living in Springfield, Illinois. The home, the 72nd building designed by Wright, contains the largest collection of site-specific, original Wright art glass and furniture. Wright’s first “blank check” commission, the home has 35 rooms in the 12,000 square feet of living space which includes 3 main levels and 16 varying levels in all.

Rightfully regarded as a local treasure, the DTH is a gorgeous house museum. Following its acquisition of the House, the Illinois State Historic Preservation Agency undertook a major restoration project. The results yielded a beautifully preserved example of Mr. Wright’s genius.

Beyond the essence of an architectural masterpiece of international significance, the house is a brilliant showcase of craftsmanship in glass doors, windows and light fixtures; terra cotta sculpture and an exquisite mural; it is the best preserved and most complete of Frank Lloyd Wright’s early “Prairie” houses.

Monday-Tuesday 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
