Frank Lloyd Wright: Fallingwater

Heading home now after a week in Hanover PA, we made reservations early in the week and toured Fallingwater, in southwestern PA, the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home situated in a place of unparalleled beauty. 

We knew we were going to need a complete change of pace and outlook after finishing our work in Hanover.  

The tour includes most of the living spaces built for the Kaufmann family of Pittsburgh and completed in 1939.  The family story, and the story behind planning and construction of their weekend retreat, is an interesting chapter in American retail history.

It was pouring rain in buckets as I took the picture.
