Fallingwater is one of the most famous homes in the United States. Built in the late 1930's, it was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the Kaufman family of Pittsburgh department store wealth. It features cascading levels of concrete, and a waterfall built into the home's environment.

It is unusual to have this many outdoor corridors as part of your home.

Visiting Fallingwater in the midst of the pandemic was a really cool experience, but a curtailed one. No interior areas were accessible, and I do think that I would have enjoyed the visit more if I had access to the inside of the house. I was also in a minor time crunch, so that affected my feeling and enjoyment of the place as well.

The low-height of this rooftop is proof (if any was needed) that Frank Lloyd Wright didn't design this house with ME in mind!

The grounds and the home are peerless and beautiful, and well worth a visit, even during the pandemic. Whether you find the lack of interior access to be a deal-breaker is up to you.
