Join us on Saturday, September 26, 2015,
as we travel to Fallingwater, "The best all-time work of American architecture." (designated by the American Institute
of Architects). Also designated by National Geographic as "one of twenty-six places to see in a lifetime",
Fallingwater holds many tantalizing stories of the post depression lives of the wealthy E. J. Kaufmann family, their relationship
with America's most famous house, and their dealings with architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Roger will tell you many details
about the house, the Kaufmanns, and F. L. Wright that our tour guides dare not share.
We'll meet and board the modern touring coach at Roger's house at 1575 Alexander Ave. in Chambersburg
at 8:00 AM. There is ample room for parking cars on Alexander and Hudson Avenues. A welcome fingerfood buffet
with Champagne Mimosas, coffee, and variety juices will be available as we gather. A hot three-course breakfast will
be served upon boarding at 8:30 AM. Midway to Fallingwater (about an hour and a half travel time), another fingerfood
buffet will be served with variety beverages at a leg stretching and restroom stop. A Ken Burns produced documentary
about the life and work of Frank Lloyd Wright will play on the six monitors on the coach as we travel.
We will arrive at Fallingwater around noon where we will browse the
staging area rotunda and gift shop on the beautiful grounds of the estate. The rotunda has its own spicy story, which
we will share. At 12:30 PM we will begin to be called in groups of about a dozen for individual tours of the house with
experienced guides. Following our tours we will meet back at the coach and enjoy lunch and variety beverages.
We will stop for restrooms half way home, and supper,
desserts, and more beverages will be served. The second half of the Ken Burns documentary on Frank Lloyd Wright will
play on our return trip. We will arrive back in Chambersburg around 8:00 PM. PLEASE NOTE THAT ENJOYMENT OF THE
TOUR INCLUDES NEGOTIATING STEPS, STANDING, AND WALKING.
