The Foreman Prairie House was built in 1918 by Mr. W.T. Foreman, a banker and pharmacist who was one of Duncan's earliest and most prominent citizens. For decades, the home stood as a proud reminder of Duncan's past.
In the 1980's, however, the home fell into disrepair. After changing hands several times, the once stately home was put up for public auction in 2004. It was then a group of community members, led by Mrs. Gail Loafman, came together to restore the home to its former glory in an effort to preserve the community's history.
Today, the Foreman Prairie House stands as one of the earliest examples of the Prairie Style School of Architecture made famous by Frank Lloyd Wright. We are on the National Registry of Historic Places and enjoy the distinction of Historic Home & Museum. This place, The Crown Jewel of Duncan, serves as a gathering place for our community and a place to connect with our roots.
