The Frank Lloyd Wright/Fallingwater Tour
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 this fall.
Finally, you'll get Fallingwater off your bucket list!
Did you know that just a few miles away, there's another remarkable Wright house, Kentuck Knob, and it's world-class outdoor sculpture garden?
Want to visit the Duncan House, another by Wright? No problem. How about two more Usonian homes inspired by Wright? Yes.
What about flying, direct, to Pennsylvania? It’s all included. Breakfast? Lunches? Wi-fi? Yes. Hotel? You betcha. Ground transportation? Of course. Wow, that’s incredible! We think so, too.
