Judy and Michael Cheteyan’s Story

Editor’s Note: Judy and Michael Cheteyan have been generous supporters of Fallingwater for more than 25 years. Michael is also a member of Fallingwater’s Advisory Committee. Here, in their own words, they explain why they love Fallingwater.

The ingenuity of Frank Lloyd Wright captures our soul, mind and imagination in this singularly amazing place called “The Fallingwater!” Although it was originally conceived more than 75 years ago on a couple of pieces of paper with a few pencil lines and sketches, it’s no surprise that today it still continues to challenge both our mind and soul.

It’s truly an honor and privilege to be able to support this “sacred ground of imagination and energy.” We believe that as members of society at large, we have a duty and responsibility to help preserve this monumental body of work for the next generation and generations to come. It is work that directly and indirectly affects all of us. Besides our faith, it’s masterpieces like this that help unite us in a bond that mythlogically transcends all of us and unites us with nature!

“In the end, it’s not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away!” (Author Unknown.) Visiting this “magical place” is one of those extraordinary moments. As you walk around and enjoy the beauty of the home and its surroundings, you suddenly realize you’re also drawn in to examine and study how one man’s vision created such a beautiful work and “special place.” Each time we view it we are again inspired and our faith in humanity is renewed.

We encourage everyone to visit and support Fallingwater and experience a similar breathtaking moment in life.

We thank Fallingwater Director Lynda Waggoner for her unwavering and tireless commitment to protect and preserve this magical place for the world’s citizens to see and experience.

Thank you - Judy and Michael Cheteyan
