“A Frank Lloyd Wright Masterpiece”

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.

Why is it so famous?  It's a house that doesn’t even appear to stand on solid ground, but instead stretches out over a 30’ waterfall. It captured everyone’s imagination when it was on the cover of Time magazine in 1938.

It is located in rural southwestern Pennsylvania, 50 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy is entrusted to preserve Fallingwater for generations to come.

The home was built partly over a waterfall on Bear Run in the Mill Run section of Stewart Township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania, in the Laurel Highlands of the Allegheny Mountains. Hailed by Time shortly after its completion as Wright's "most beautiful job", it is listed among Smithsonian's Life List of 28 places "to visit before you die." It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966. In 1991, members of the American Institute of Architects named the house the "best all-time work of American architecture" and in 2007, it was ranked twenty-ninth on the list of America's Favorite Architecture according to the AIA.

The house will be open for tours daily except Wednesday now through Friday, November 30.  We will also be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22.  Winter hours begin Saturday, December 1. Be sure to purchase your tour tickets today!

Fallingwater is a must-visit if you're traveling to Pittsburgh. There's a great guided tour that goes throughout the home (photography isn't allowed unfortunately). There's also a Cafe, Museum Shop, Information center and bathrooms located in a pavilion nearby. I recommend making reservations well ahead of your visit. Also, you'll want to had down the road about 15 minutes away to see Frank Lloyd Wright's Kentuck Knob house.

If you're into FLW, it's part of the grand tour. And the architecture is undeniably innovative. The Visitor Center is well done. But the house tour is not terribly kid-friendly, nor accessible and rather pricey on top of all that. Plus they shuttle you into a soft pitch for a $ gift at the end. The iconic view of the house is actually not even on the tour, but down a well-marked pathway a few hundred yards from the main path to the house. The resourceful and thrifty who aren't all that interested in the guided tour could probably grab this view for free.

LOVED IT!!!!! Sooo cool - expect to spend about 2-3 hours touring the house and grounds - the grounds are almost as good as the house. There is also another FLW house nearby (Kenuck Knob) but it has a totally different feel. Don't miss staying or at least seeing for the rest of the day the state park right down the road a few miles - lots of nice waterfalls, awesome railroad bridge that you can bike or hike on, cute little town with places to eat, rent bikes, etc... You can make a weekend getaway in this little area easily and never get bored.

Loved this! Nature. Great architecture. Great tour! Must do! West tennis shoes bc its a short hike to the house. It won't be that bad if you wear sandals, but would be better with tennis shoes. Also cafe had great organic food. Delicious!

This iconic piece of architecture is beautiful inside and out. Even on a rainy day when the building's flaws - it leaked like a sieve - showed, it was an extremely worthwhile stop. Though I didn't extensively explore the gardens, they too looked lovely. Tour guides were knowledgeable and informational (but they exclusively praise Wright, who was actually dramatic and hard to work with). The cafe is nice, healthy, and well-priced for museum dining. Trash is "carry-in/carry-out" policy. You have to pay to see the house (which, again, is definitely worth it!), but I believe it's free to see the grounds.

added this to our Itinerary at the last minute. Tours are pricey at $27.00 per person, it was $8.00 per person just to walk around the grounds. Parts of the structure were under renovation, so some scaffolding was visible, but with a little creative picture taking you can block out the unwanted parts and still take some good pictures.

Had a fantastic time here. $25 per person for the one hour tour, which is probably all that is necessary. Make sure and walk down the river for the iconic view of the house from down below the falls.

About the house, much has been said, but I was able to see the brilliant use of glass and stone, to create a wide open airy feel. This is common now, but was way ahead of the time in 1937.

As mentioned, it's not a large house, but extremely innovative.

There are some hidden gems on the property, so if you have the time, walk around and check out the nature trails. It was very easy to find the property and get in and out, but the property itself is not near any population center, so gas up before you get here.

This is the definitive house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, one of the best modern architects. It's truly breathtaking and the perfect marriage of nature and architecture.

We did not take our two eleven-year-olds on the interior tour because we thought it may have bored them and required some planning. Looking around the grounds and outside the house was completely amazing. The two girls were in awe, and they are not art fans in general. It is a worthwhile stop for certain. We got some of the best pictures of the trip from this location.
