The Frank Lloyd Wright/Fallingwater Tour
Saturday-Sunday, May 14-15

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 NCModernist on our 11th annual trip. What about flying, direct, to Pennsylvania? It’s all included. Breakfast? Lunch each day? Wi-fi? Yes. Hotel? You betcha. Dinner Saturday night? Ground transportation? Of course, plus all admissions. Wow, that’s incredible! We think so, too. We do all the work so you can have a wonderful bucket list experience!


Fallingwater was designed by world-renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935 over a waterfall as a weekend home for the Kaufman family. After its completion, Time called it Wright's "most beautiful job," and it is listed among Smithsonian's Life List of 28 places to visit before you die. The house was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966. In 1991, the AIA named Fallingwater the "best all-time work of American architecture" and in 2007, it was ranked 29th for the AIA's America's Favorite Architecture.

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 chock full of them! This is the Duncan House.

And this is the Lindholm House.
