Built Over a Waterfall
"Fallingwater is the name of a house built over a waterfall in southwest Pennsylvania. 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." www.fallingwater.org This house built over a waterfall is very unique and allows for an awesome adventure. Hidden in the forest this house is a short walk down a scenic trail. Upon visiting it is important to note that there is an entrance fee per person. Once you entered the park and received your visitation sticker park in the designated lot. From the parking lot follow the signs and arrows labeled "House." By following these markers walk the trail through the forest until you reach the house. A bridge upstream from the house allows you to cross Bear Run and explore the house up close. Walk on the porches that hang over the water and take in all the detail that went into this project. After daydreaming about living there you can follow the path behind the house up to the Guest House or continue on to two viewing areas. The first viewing area gives you amazing opportunities to photograph the house, stream, and waterfall. The second labeled "Bird's Eye View" gives you an elevated look over the area. From these viewing areas return back to the trail and follow the signs and arrows labeled "Visitor Center." Once at the Visitor Center you can grab a souvenir from the Gift Shop, learn more about the construction process, or have a snack that you brought. It is important to note that tours of the inside of the house are not provided during the winter months. If going during the winter call ahead to make sure trail conditions are accessible. No more than 15 minutes away from Fallingwater is Ohiopyle State Park. A Pennsylvania State Park filled with waterfalls, scenic overlooks, natural waterslides, gift shops, restaurants, white water rafting, and tons more of adventure.
