Off to Fallingwater

We’ve been regularly hanging out in Pittsburgh for almost 15 years – and never done the drive out to Frank Lloyd Wright‘s Fallingwater. Today that changes.

In a few minutes we leave for Ohiopyle and then mid-afternoon we do Fallingwater – you have to book a tour beforehand. I’ll try to post a photo later today – exterior only – no photo taking allowed inside.

‘Tis a lovely day in the ‘burgh with partly cloudy skies and temps in the low 50s ºF. Mid 40’s at Ohiopyle. Should be a great day.

UPDATE:
In all the years (since 1992) that we have travelled to Pittsburgh, I was never really interested in going to Fallingwater. Boy, was I wrong! It was well worth the drive and the cost ($16 bucks per person). We had fabulous weather, sunny skies and near perfect temperatures.

Here are a few shots (at my friend, Garry’s reminder.) I want to go back again even if my mold allergy was driven crazy by the place. It was that wonderful (though the ceiling heights are rather low). Wikipedia has a very good page on the former Kaufman family vacation residence.

  1. So, how was Falling Water? I’m quite envious! I’ve read a couple of books on the house and on two trips to Chicago I was able to take in quite a bit of Frank Lloyd Wright stuff which was quite inspiring. Any photos for flickr? We’re thinking about a trip to the east coast of the US this summer, Warm Springs, Virginia, and would make Falling Water a stopping point for sure.
