All the time!
Preserving Duncan's History...
Viridian Coffee & The FPH!
The mission of The Prairie House Foundation is to rescue, restore and preserve for posterity the historically and architecturally significant former residence of W. T. Foreman, a banker and pharmacist who was one of Duncan's earliest and most prominent citizens. This stately home was built in 1918 and will be 100 years old next year!
Our goal is to present this most beautiful, early example of Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie School of Architecture
as a gathering place of history and education for the benefit and enjoyment of our beloved community and welcomed visitors.
Visit. Explore. Relax. Enjoy!
Whether you are attending a Community Event, participating in an Open House Tour with one of our enthusiastic and knowledgable docents, or wish to reserve this special home for your own Private Gathering...
You may rest assured there will be a Warm Welcome from the moment you enter the front gate of the Foreman Prairie House!
The FPH hosts Community Open House events three times annually... One of these free tour days is our Fall Vintage Day!
Please join us on Saturday, September 30th from 1-4pm! Enjoy the cooler weather with Front Porch Storytelling, a Pop-Up Petting Zoo, Old-Fashioned Hayrides and Lawn Games, Pumpkin Painting, Special Vintage Hand Craft Demonstrations by Local Artisans, Live Music and Refreshments!
We will also kick-off our Annual Cinnamon Roll & Viridian Coffee Sale!
(Order now for delivery the Thursday prior to Thanksgiving!)
FPH Educational Forums...
Join us for Vintage Day!
The school bells are ringing in the Fall Semester! Over here at the FPH we're geared up for our Educational Forums.. During these STEAM sensitive events, DPS Students, Parents and Teachers fill the old house and grounds to learn about their own local heritage! Children are divided into small groups and paired with docents (all in their places with bright shining faces!) for 15 minute breakout sessions. Some of our sessions include an Art Session (with take-home project), Living History House Tour (where students learn how this almost 100 year old home was saved for THEM!) and Kitchen Conversations (homemade butter shaken in a jar and a lesson on Prairie Style architecture)...
Students, parents and teachers enjoy our homebaked rolls with their own handmade butter on the front porch before heading on their way!
