Our Pilgrimage to Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water, Mill Run, PA
August 2012, I took a few days away from the inn and traveled with my daughter Jody, and friend Kris to Mill Run, PA to see the infamous “Falling Water”. www.falllingwater.org The Frank Lloyd Wright house built as a vacation home for the Kaufman family from Pittsburg, PA. The house is a true Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece in art and architecture. It was amazing!
While we were there, we stayed at the Historic Summit Inn Resort, Farmington, PA www.summitinnresort.com Built in 1907 this historic inn with grand verandas looking down upon a beautiful valley with the most spectacular sunsets imaginable. I highly recommend the trip.
Through the years, we’ve traveled to other FLW properties throughout the country. Now, it is your turn to travel to our Manitowoc-Two Rivers Area to get your fix of Frank Lloyd Wright. Running from June 9 – August 4th the Rahr-West Art Museum www.rahrwestartmuseum.org will have an exhibit entitled Frank Lloyd Wright: Architecture of the Interior.
