Falling Water

Falling Water
1491 Mill Run Road

The purpose of the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy’s operation of Fallingwater is:

to preserve, maintain and make available for public education and appreciation Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece, Fallingwater.

to demonstrate by the example of Fallingwater the powerful result that can be achieved through the harmonious union of man’s work with nature

to maintain in Fallingwater its character as a weekend home of the period it was occupied by its owners, Edgar and Liliane Kaufmann (occupied 1937 to 1955) and their son, Edgar Kaufmann, jr. (occupied 1937 to 1963)

to preserve its original furnishings, art and household objects, exhibiting them as naturally as possible in what is now a public museum

to conserve the land and watershed into which Fallingwater was designed to fit, as a continuing source of inspiration through a 5000 acre nature reserve intended for both recreation and study.
