Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater Expands Choices
Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright.


PITTSBURGH, PA.- Seventy years after Frank Lloyd Wright put pencil to paper and produced the revolutionary design for a mountain retreat that quickly became one of the most famous houses of all time, Western Pennsylvania Conservancy (WPC) is still discovering new ways for visitors to appreciate Fallingwater.

Guided tours of this recently restored house on a waterfall resume their regular season (March 15) with several new features designed to enrich the visitor experience at this unforgettable site. Since 1963, close to 4 million people have visited Fallingwater, which was named one of 50 Places of a Lifetime by National Geographic Traveler Magazine.

"Now that the restoration is complete, we want our visitors to have an opportunity to experience the house in a more leisurely way so that both its complexity and intimacy can be better absorbed," commented Fallingwater Director Lynda S. Waggoner.

Two special tours now offer a closer experience of Fallingwater. Sunset Tours combine a late-afternoon in-depth tour of the house and grounds, led by the senior interpretive staff, followed with outdoor refreshments. Exclusive Focus Tours allow visitors to tour Fallingwater with a member of the curatorial staff; then share a private lunch and lively conversation about Fallingwater's history.
