As one of the earliest examples of the prairie style architecture made famous by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the Foreman Prairie House is referred to by many as the “crown jewel” of Duncan, Oklahoma. The house was built in 1918 by banker and pharmacist W.T. Foreman, one of the community’s most prominent citizens. After the home fell into disrepair in the 1980’s with changing ownership, a group of community members purchased the estate when it was put up for public auction in 2004 and restored the house to its former glory. The Foreman Prairie House is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and currently serves as a museum and event venue complete with 1930’s furnishings, props and décor.
Many thanks to the Duncan Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Foreman Prairie House for listing this property on our database in consideration of future film and television prospects in Oklahoma and the city’s newly certified ‘film friendly’ designation through OF+MO’s Oklahoma Film Friendly Community Program.
