Frank Lloyd Wright's Kentuck Knob

One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s last houses he constructed was in 1953-1956 near Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania just SouthEast of Pittsburgh.  He was even working on the Guggenheim Museum in New York City at the time. This house is known as “Kentuck Knob” and is not far from Fallingwater. It was originally built for the Hagan family on 80 acres near a peak on the Allegheny Mountains. It was a “small” home for the everyday man in his Usonian style. It was about 2300 square feet and had a $90,000 solid copper roof. The owners originally wanted the house built at the very peak of the mountain with views over the valleys below, but Wright refused and moved it back down the mountain slope near some natural rock outcroppings. This is a panoramic view of the front of the house from 12 individual photographs stitched together. View large if possible.
