Fayette County, PA – October 2011 – Kentuck Knob

Situated just 4 miles south of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous home, Fallingwater, the house known as Kentuck Knob sits high up on a ridge. The grounds consists of 79 acres that was originally a farm.

Built between 1953 and 1956, it was one of Wright’s last homes. The construction materials include red cypress, glass, and native sandstone, topped with a copper roof.

As with many homes that are open to the public, photography was prohibited inside.
