Fallingwater is the name of a very special house that is built over a waterfall. Frank Lloyd Wright, America’s most famous architect, designed the house for his clients, the Kaufmann family. Fallingwater was built between 1936 and 1939. It instantly became famous, and today it is a National Historic Landmark.
Kentuck Knob was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the last decade of his career for I.N. and Bernardine Hagan. Completed in 1956, this deluxe Usonian is nestled high in the Laurel Highlands of western Pennsylvania, just seven miles from Fallingwater and six miles from Route 40, the historic National Road. Constructed of tidewater red cypress, glass, and 800 tons of native sandstone, with a copper roof, the home embodies Mr. Wright’s principles of organic architecture.
A sweeping view of the Youghiogheny River gorge, and surrounding hills and farmland, awaits at the end of the tour. A sculpture meadow with 35 major works enhances your visit.
