Deneau Society

Welcome to the Dayton Area Deneau Society

DADS takes its name from one of the area’s standout architects from the midcentury time period, Paul Deneau. He was the architect of many prominent buildings of the era, including the Grant-Deneau Tower at 40 West Fourth Street, the AFL-CIO Lakewoods Tower at 980 Wilmington Avenue, the Dayton Convention Center, and UD’s Campus South Building at 311 Irving Avenue. 

Accordingly, the Deneau Society seeks to advocate for the recognition, celebration, and preservation of the area’s significant and exemplary midcentury modern architecture, such as those that are discussed in this study commissioned by the State of Ohio Historic Preservation Office. Ideally, it would also provide a forum to share knowledge and ideas about this subject among members in a fun, casual environment.

As Paul Deneau said in 1967, “Dayton, while possibly still a little behind is, more so than ever, a city of opportunity.”
