Designed by the world renowned architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, Fallingwater originally served as a summer home to department store owner Edgar J. Kaufmann. One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most widely acclaimed works, Fallingwater, which was built over a waterfall, exemplifies Wright’s concept of organic architecture: the harmonious union of art and nature. Owned and operated by the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, this unique landmark has hosted more than 4.5 million visitors since it opened to the public.

An impressive Frank Lloyd Wright home, Kentuck Knob is privately-owned and open for public guided tours. Designed on a hexagonal module, Kentuck Knob is a small one story Usonian house. Usonian, meaning affordable for the common people, was a signature design of Wright. Both dramatic and serene, the house, situated just below the crest of the hills, appears almost part of the mountain itself, standing two thousand fifty feet above sea level. Visitors are invited to browse the landmark's impressive sculpture collection and gift shop.
*Due to construction please note the detour between Kentuck Knob and Ohiopyle State Park. View Route on Google Maps> Learn More> Duncan House
Built in 1957, the Frank Lloyd Wright designed home was dismantled from its original location in Lisle, Illinois, and moved to Polymath Park Resort, where a plan was put in place to reconstruct the Duncan House on Westmoreland County property. The Duncan House is complimented by two other Usonian-style homes that were designed for the original vision of Polymath Park by Wright’s apprentice, Peter Berndtson. After many months of complex craftsmanship, the home is as a stellar example of Wright’s Usonian designs.

Built in the summer of 1754, Fort Necessity is the site of the inaugural French and Indian War, which would set the stage for the American Revolution. Visit the battle site where a young George Washington was soundly defeated. Wander through the Visitor’s Center, a reconstructed Fort Necessity and the Mt. Washington Tavern.

The Flight 93 National Memorial was created to honor the actions of the passengers and crew of Flight 93 on September 11, 2001. It is in place to protect their final resting place and to tell their story. On September 11, 2001, four commercial airliners were hijacked in an attack on the United States and nearly 3,000 people tragically lost their lives.
