The Dana-Thomas House or Susan Lawrence Dana House or Dana House is an expression of architect Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie Style. Located along East Lawrence Avenue in Springfield, Illinois, USA, for patron Susan Lawrence Dana.

The house has windows placed so as to continually draw the resident or guest into an awareness of the outside. Wright designed approximately 450 art glass windows, skylights, door panels, sconces, and light fixtures for the house, most of which survive. Some pictures of these are shown below. Much of the art glass centered on a sumac motif.
