November 12, 2018

Mill Run, Pa. – Nov. 12, 2018 – Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterwork located in the scenic Laurel Highlands, will offer free admission to Fayette County residents during its biannual Fayette County Appreciation Days on Sunday, Nov. 18 and Saturday, Dec. 8. Funding for November’s Fayette County Day is provided by the Jack Buncher Foundation.

In addition to touring the house, visitors are invited to explore the latest exhibition in the Speyer Gallery called “Kaufmann’s Summer Camp: For an Ideal Vacation.” This exhibition explores what Bear Run was like before Fallingwater was built by the Kaufmann family. Free educational activities will also be offered throughout the day in the Hillman Education Pavilion, located behind the gallery.

Advance reservations for tours are essential to guarantee admittance. Tours are available from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Residents are encouraged to call 724-329-8501 for information and reservations.

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