Perched on a rock above a gushing waterfall, this historic house was built for a Pittsburgh family by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1930s, ingeniously designed to blend harmoniously into the tranquil and beautiful woods around it.

Falling Water is a must for anyone with even a faint interest in architecture. OK, maybe not even a faint interest, but an appreciation for something that represents genius in form, art, and just plain putting it all together. Make a reservation for a tour....More
