Fallingwater is the iconic House over the Waterfall designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935, and built over Bear Run for the Kaufmann family of Pittsburgh. Guests from all over the world come to Pennsylvania’s Southern Laurel Highlands to visit this masterpiece of American architecture. Fallingwater is cared for by the Pennsylvania Western Conservancy, a non-profit organization that protects it and many beautiful acres of Pennsylvania wildlife and property. Hartzell House Bed & Breakfast is a proud Fallingwater Partner in Education.
Just 10 minutes from Fallingwater you will find Kentuck Knob, a single story Usonian home that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright as a primary residence for the Hagan family. Kentuck Knob sits just below the crest of a hill that offers outstanding views of the area, and while visiting, one should stroll the vast sculpture garden. The Hagans were regionally renowned for their wonderful ice cream, which may be enjoyed at the on-site café and gift shop.
The Duncan House at Polymath Park
A scenic 30-minute drive Northwest of Fallingwater is Polymath Park, a 125-acre property that is home to Duncan House, a Frank Lloyd Wright property relocated to the site from Illinois in 2006. The property already hosted two homes designed in the early 1960s to become part of a planned Usonian community. It is now operated and lovingly tended by owners who have a keen vision to share the unique charms and ideals created by the forward-thinking individuals who came before them. Polymath Park offers guests the unique opportunity to stay overnight in these charming and historic structures, and enjoy the wonderful onsite restaurant, as well.
