Our Mission

The mission of the Eugene O'Neill Foundation, Tao House, is to celebrate and promote the vision and legacy of Eugene O'Neill, America's foremost playwright.

To achieve its mission, the foundation collaborates with the National Park Service in restoring and preserving Tao House, providing for future generations a memorial that:

  • Perpetuates the vision of Eugene O'Neill
  • Provides artistic and educational programs which focus on Eugene
    O'Neill's contribution to theatre in America and the world.
  • Maintains a research library which collects, preserves and exhibits
    books, photos and artifacts related to Eugene O'Neill and the American theatre.

Tao House is located in Danville, California, at the Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site, a National Park Service unit.

George MillerFOUNDATION AWARDS DINNER
A WONDERFUL SUCCESS!
Honors to Congressman George Miller
& East Bay Regional Park District


On October 28, the Foundation celebrated its 40th Anniversary and used it as an opportunity to honor Congressman George Miller (11th District, California), and the East Bay Regional Park District. Both were central to saving Tao House in the mid-1970s. Rep. Miller proposed legislation that resulted in creation of the Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site in 1975, and EBRPD held the land while the legislative process continued, thereby saving Tao House and adjoining property from expected development. The Foundation salutes them both for their successful efforts to preserve the home of “The Father of American Drama.”
