The Barn at Fallingwater is a reminder of western Pennsylvania's agrarian past. Located near the renowned Kaufmann family residence designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Barn sits in a hillside clearing between two forests in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, a site now owned by the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy.Despite having been adapted for reuse, the nineteenth-century "bank barn" retains its rustic qualities. Modern materials subtly woven into the structure allow light and air to seep through gaps in the wood walls. Sustainable elements, seamlessly integrated into the existing structure, minimize environmental impact and visibly demonstrate green strategies.In the grand space on the barn's upper level, the Conservancy holds educational and social events for its members and the local community in warmer months. A 1940s dairy barn added by the Kaufmanns has been adapted as a year-round gathering, performance, and exhibit space.The Barn at Fallingwater exemplifies the Conservancy's stated mission: "Saving the places we care about by connecting people to the natural world."
