Mill Run, Pa. – Nov. 5 – Fallingwater, the Frank Lloyd Wright masterwork located at Bear Run Nature Reserve in the scenic Laurel Highlands, will offer free admission to Fayette County residents during its annual Fayette County Appreciation Days Friday, Nov. 16, and Sunday, Nov. 18.

Hundreds of friends and neighbors visit Fallingwater during Fayette County Days every year. In addition to touring the house, visitors are invited to explore the nearly 5,100-acre nature reserve and learn about volunteer opportunities.

Fayette County residents played an important role in Fallingwater’s history and remain involved in its ongoing preservation and stewardship. Residents of Fayette County helped to build the iconic home and numerous area residents now serve as staff or volunteers at the world-renowned house museum.
