Mill Run, Pa. – Nov. 9 – Fallingwater, a 2015 nominee to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage list, will offer free admission to Fayette County residents during its Fayette County Appreciation Days on Friday, Nov. 13, and Sunday, Nov. 15.
Last year, more than 900 Fayette County residents visited Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater during Fayette County Appreciation Days. In addition to touring the house, visitors are invited to explore the adjacent 5,100-acre Bear Run Nature Reserve, visit the latest exhibit in the Speyer Gallery called “A House for a Curator: Edgar Kaufmann jr. and the Fallingwater Collection” and learn about volunteer opportunities.
Advance reservations for tours are essential to guarantee admittance. Tours are available from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Residents are encouraged to call 724-329-8501 for information and reservations.
Fayette County residents had an important role in Fallingwater’s history and remain actively involved in its ongoing preservation, interpretation 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.
