Mill Run, Pa. – November 1, 2010 – Residents of Fayette County will receive free admission to tour Fallingwater during its annual Fayette County Appreciation Days November 19 and 21.

Advance reservations for tours are essential to guarantee admittance. Please call 724-329-8501 for information and reservations.

Fayette County residents played an important role in Fallingwater’s history and remain actively involved in its ongoing preservation and stewardship.
