The Frank Lloyd Wright/Fallingwater Tour 2018
Sunday-Monday, September 23-24

Have you always wanted to see Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece? It's the most famous Modernist house in America! Do the Wright thing and join NCMH on our annual trip this fall. What about flying, direct, to Pennsylvania? It’s all included. Breakfast? Lunches? Wi-fi? Yes. Hotel? You betcha. Dinner Saturday night? Ground transportation? Of course, plus all admissions. Wow, that’s incredible! We think so, too.

This is NCMH's 9th trip to Fallingwater!

Did you know that just a few miles away, there's another remarkable Wright house, Kentuck Knob, and its world-class outdoor sculpture garden? That's included.

Want to see more Modernist houses by Wright and his apprentices? You'll go to Polymath Park, which is full of them!


Join NCMH's merry band of architectural adventurers as we make the pilgrimage to Fallingwater and all things Wright. This trip is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, with virtually everything included.

The Fine Print
  • All participants will be invited to a free group potluck dinner in August in Durham to get to know each other before the trip. 
  • All participants are required to sign a liability release before going on the trip. You'll get this a few weeks ahead, or at the potluck.
  • Once full payment is made, there are no refunds for any reason except if NCMH cancels the trip. However, you can transfer your place to another person with at least two weeks written notice to NCMH.
  • The itinerary, number, and order of trip events are subject to change without notice or refund.
  • There is a small but possible risk of overnight stay if buses and/or flights are delayed, in which case participants are responsible for any additional costs of meals, lodging, transportation, and incidental expenses. The chances of this happening are very small, and it has never happened before on an NCMH trip, but it could happen, so be prepared.
  • No checked luggage allowed, carry-on only. 
  • Parking at RDU is not included.

Architects can get self-reported CEU hours if arranged in advance with the AIA. For questions, please call NCMH's Executive Director George Smart at 919.740.8407.

Proceeds benefit NCMH's work in the documentation, preservation, and promotion of residential Modernist architecture.
