Create an itinerary including Fallingwater
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.

  • Fantastic tour guide (Scott) and amazing architecture. The rain and snow did not get in the way of a wonderful experience, these guys are prepared for inclement weather! Small groups currently make for an intimate experience which was great!
  • It's so beautiful and peaceful....I love this place. visited about 20 years ago and finally got to share it with my husband and kiddos. Today it was a bit cold and I wasn't quite prepared for the amount of time we'd spend outside prior to the tour. Brandon was our guide and he has such a gentle and lovely personality.
