Thomas Benton Gray House is a two-story post Victorian home built in 1886 by Mr. Gray for his family residence. It is a Historic Illinois Centennial Farm, rich in family history and tradition.

Everett (Great-grandson of Thomas Benton Gray) and Judy Dean moved into the house in 1964 and in 1975 Everett renovated the house, keeping the original style intact using walnut, cherry and oak extensively. The walnut staircase and pocket doors are original, as is the built-in bookcase in the Walnut Room.

You are invited to relax in a peaceful country atmosphere, sit on the front porch and enjoy a quiet, peaceful getaway. Everett and Judy will greet you personally and do their best to make your stay an enjoyable one.
