Things To Do

We are excited to welcome you all to the Laurel Mountains! These mountains are where Margaret learned to ski, went to summer camp, and spent late nights playing with her cousins in the bunk room at her grandparents' house. Roberto's memories here started in 2015, spending his birthday and fall break with Margaret's family learning to fly fish (he caught many trees), and have since grown. We hope you all are able to explore some of the places that are meaningful to us!

Hike in Linn Run State Park

Visit Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater

1491 Mill Run Road, Mill Run, PA 15464

Fallingwater is a house designed in 1935 by renowned American architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) for the Kaufmann family, owners of Pittsburgh’s largest department store. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater is one of his most widely acclaimed works and best exemplifies his philosophy of organic architecture: the harmonious union of art and nature. Fallingwater is located in the mountains of Southwestern Pennsylvania, also known as the Laurel Highlands, in Mill Run, Fayette County, which is about 70 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. Wright designed Fallingwater to rise above the waterfall over which it is built. Local craftsmen quarried native sandstone and other materials from the property and completed the construction of the main house, guest house and service wing in 1939.

Tour Fort Ligonier

200 South Market Street, Ligonier, PA 15658

As summer waned in 1758, the site of a new fortification was chosen by the British army that overlooked the Loyalhanna Creek. It was the last in a string of fortifications along the newly cut Forbes Road that would ultimately stretch from Philadelphia to the site of French Fort Duquesne, the ultimate objective of the Forbes Campaign. When Fort Duquesne fell to the British army in late November of 1758, construction of a new fort, Fort Pitt, began, and the land on which it rose was named Pittsburgh. Find out more about how Fort Ligonier made Pittsburgh possible as you explore the grounds of the finest reconstructed fortification from the French and Indian War.
