Falling Water

Tonight’s post is of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water home in rural southwestern Pennsylvania.  It was originally built for the Kaufmann family, who owned a department store in downtown Pittsburgh back in the 1930s.  This home is built over a waterfall on Bear Run in the Mill Run section of Fayette County in the Laurel Highlands area of the Allegheny Mountains.

The home is listed on Smithsonian's Life List of places "to visit before you die".  It is also a National Historic Landmark. 

We had some friends in for the weekend, so we visited this site and the Andy Warhol Museum in downtown Pittsburgh.
