Nonprofit & Social Events

The Barn at Fallingwater welcomes nonprofit groups for meetings and conferences. Whether hosting a one day meeting or a multi-day conference, The Barn’s unique site and special nonprofit rates will allow you to create the ideal event for your organization. The Barn is a converted historic Pennsylvania bank barn, located about 500 yards north of Fallingwater at the entrance to the Bear Run Nature Reserve. Several distinct settings are available that can be used by themselves or combined to meet your group or social event needs. The proximity to Fallingwater allows you to create the perfect ending to your meeting – tours of the house with social time on the bridge outside.

The Fireplace Room  

The Fireplace Room features a large stone fireplace that dominates one end of the room. The original milking parlor from the time when the barn was an active dairy farm, it has been renovated to serve as event space while still retaining the feel of the original parlor.

The Threshing Room

The Threshing Room is exactly as the name implies – the large room in the upper barn that was used for the separation of grain seeds from the straw, it also was used for hay storage in the lofts overhead. The Threshing Room has been restored to preserve the integrity of the space, including the 19th century post-and-beam construction and barn board walls. The Threshing Room is for seasonal use only as it is not heated or air-conditioned. Typically, it is used from May through mid-October. Large sliding doors open to the rear allowing events to expand to the outdoors. Tents can be added to this area to provide additional covered space.
