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.

We have lived in PA all my life but it took a Pandemic to get back and appreciate nature, the arts, and architectural design of Frank Lloyd Wright. You study in books but make the history come alive..... more »
It was such a great experience to visit one of Wright's architectural masterpieces, which is in incredibly great shape and run excellently. The house is beautiful and the whole experience is simply amazing; great architecture nestled in nature; rich in history and art. Tours are timed and very organized; better to make reservations ahead of time. No children under 6 allowed inside the house tour. No pictures allowed during the tour either! This is a must see!
What a spectacular place. The surroundings are breathtaking and the house flows right along with the beauty. Frank Lloyd Wright new how incorporate nature's bounty! This has been my favorite of his designs. You do have a little walk but if you have trouble getting around they have something to get you back and forth.
