Hundreds of friends and neighbors visit Fallingwater during Fayette County Appreciation Days each year.

Fayette County residents played an important role in Fallingwater’s history and remain involved in its ongoing preservation and stewardship. Residents of Fayette County helped to build the iconic home and numerous area residents now serve as staff or volunteers at the world-renowned house museum.
