Fallingwater, Mill Run

A Frank Lloyd Wright house built over a waterfall, Fallingwater was named the "best all-time work of American architecture" in 2007 by the American Institute of Architects. The family house was commissioned by Edgar Kaufmann Sr., and Wright welcomed the challenge. Kaufmann once dared to go behind Wright's back to consult an engineer about the risky design. Wright was so offended that he threatened to leave the project. Kaufmann relented, and Wright buried the engineer's report in one of the walls. The house was the Kaufmann family's weekend retreat until 1963, when the family gave it to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, which opened it to the public. Notice the remarkable furniture--Wright designed it specifically for the space.

  • A very beautiful view if you are a fan of abstract architecture. The house has been kept as original as can be. This means that it is starting to show some age, but the age adds to the character. You could view just the house in about a half hour, or tour the grounds and spend a few hours. Since it is such a high profile location, parking can be hard to come by. Going on an off time would help with this.
  • Beautiful historic home of interesting Pittsburgh family. Designed by the great Frank Lloyd Wright. It's a must see not just for the architectural design (incredible it was built during the Great Depression) but also for the gorgeous peaceful natural setting. Just phenomenal! Our guide was wonderful!
