RHONDA AND DICK THOMPSON
Area residents Rhonda and Richard Thompson already had dedicated themselves to preserving the community’s heritage and farmland when the Allen House became available. Realizing the architectural importance of the house, the significant contributions of the Allen family to the field of medicine and the architectural genius of the builder, Thompson decided to take the enormous step to save the house for posterity. The Richard and Rhonda Thompson Foundation was created to restore historic buildings and the Allen House selected as a primary project.
The Thompsons decided the house needed a purpose beyond that of a museum. Wishing to preserve the home’s historic heritage, they meticulously restored its rooms—mixing in only enough modern furnishings to allow for a guest’s comfortable stay. They then expanded its potential use by adding a kitchen, conference and banquet room, tavern and gardens.
Today, the pair can often be found working on the latest Puzzle Room challenge or mingling with guests during a Friday evening Tavern night.
