Mill Run, Pa. – March 7, 2019 – Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterwork located in the scenic Laurel Highlands, will offer its first free admission day of this season to Fayette County residents during its biannual Fayette County Appreciation Days on Sunday, March 17.
In addition to touring the house, visitors of all ages are invited to participate in free hands-on educational activities in the Hillman Education Pavilion adjacent to the Speyer Gallery at Fallingwater’s Visitors Center. Residents are also invited to explore the latest exhibition in the gallery, called “Kaufmann’s Summer Camp: For an Ideal Vacation.”
Advance reservations for tours are essential to guarantee admittance. Tours are available from 10 a.m. to 4 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 the county helped to build the iconic home and numerous area residents now serve as staff or volunteers at the world-renowned house museum.
The second Fayette County Appreciation Day is set for Nov. 17, 2019, and county residents are encouraged to register now, too, for this free day of house tours in the fall.
