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.  Finally, you'll get Fallingwater off your bucket list!

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. Wow, that’s incredible! We think so, too. 


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?  We will go there.

Want to visit the Duncan House, another by Wright? No problem.  How about two more Usonian homes inspired by Wright?  Yes! 

Join NCMH and our 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:

Roundtrip DIRECT flight to Pittsburgh Intl Airport via American Airlines.

Our own air-conditioned touring bus with wifi.

Guided detailed tours of Fallingwater, Kentuck Knob, and Polymath Park (Duncan house plus 2 additional houses), with external photography permitted.

Double occupancy accommodations at the Mount Pleasant Holiday Inn Express with free breakfast and free wifi.  This is our seventh year there; they love us!

The Fine Print

All participants are required to sign a liability release before going on the trip.  This will be emailed to you a few weeks ahead.

All participants are invited to a group potluck in Durham to get to know each other about a month ahead of the trip. 

Once full payment is made, there are no refunds for any reason except for trip cancellation. 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.  Hey, it's only one night!

For questions, please call NCMH's Executive Director George Smart at 919.740.8407.  Proceeds benefit the documentation, preservation, and promotion efforts of NCMH.
