Come join Gunther Tours today for a delightful day in Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands.  First we will visit Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania.  One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most widely-acclaimed works, Fallingwater was designed in 1935 for the family of Pittsburgh department store owner Edgar J. Kaufmann.  Dramatically cantilevered over a waterfall, the house, perhaps better than any single work exemplifies Wright’s concept of organic architecture:  the harmonious union of art and nature.  Fallingwater is named one of “50 places of a lifetime” by National Geographic Traveler.  Following lunch we make the short drive to Dunbar, Pennsylvania to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Kentuck Knob.  Kentuck Knob is built high atop a bluff and overlooking the Youghiogheny River Gorge.  The house occupies a special place by virtue of its beauty and the isolation of its mountain site, the vitality of its plan, and the quality of its materials and construction.  A great believer in the beauty of natural materials, Mr. Wright combined the native fieldstone so abundant throughout the property with tidewater red cypress to create a chorus of color and texture that replicates the surrounding landscape.  Note:  Fast food stops will be made both en route to Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands, and on the return trip home.  Please make sure you are an able walker before booking onto this trip.  Wear comfortable walking shoes, (no heels).  This tour is not suitable for people who have trouble with mobility!
