Happy Birthday, Fallingwater!

You're 75 but you don't look a day over 50...

This National Historic Landmark residence was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) in 1935 for the Kaufman family in rural Pennsylvania. Fallingwater gets its nickname from the fact that the home is cantilevered and built out partially over a waterfall on the Bear Run river. Construction began in 1936 and the house was completed in 1937. No longer a private residence, the house is owned and operated by the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy which allows visitors into this living museum, and Wright's most famous creation.
