‪We got to visit Kentuck Knob when we were visiting in the area. Our tour guide, Chris was wonderful and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend visiting this place. I just wish they would allow photos inside the house, like the other Frank Lloyd Wright houses in the area (Fallingwater, Duncan, Mantyla).‬

‪As part of my retirement I'm spending time visiting as many Frank Lloyd Wright houses/buildings as possible. I was on my way home from the Beth Shalom Synagogue in Elkins Park Pennsylvania and this was on the way. I booked the detailed tour, (HIGHLY recommend this tour). I was the only one on this tour (first one of the day, 9:00am) and Jennifer (tour guide) and I were the only ones there. Jennifer was amazing. She (like most guides at Wright structures) was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and showed a clear love of the job. This always makes a tour great, but with her, it was nice to be able to talk/discuss the house and the Wright philosophy. As far as the house goes. This was on par with Fallingwater or the Allen house in Kansas. The house is gorgeous inside and out. The grounds would be better in late spring. My next trip will be warmer weather. I would recommend two days to the area, to be able to see both Fallingwater (6 miles north) and Kentuck Knob, yes, you can probably see both in one day, but the exteriors of both need time to really appreciate. If you are in the area, visit!!! Even if your not a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, you will appreciate the house. Can't say enough about it.‬

‪A gem in southwestern Pa you should not miss. We have been coming for 16 years to celebrate our anniversary as we were lucky enough to be married on site. Took the in depth tour with Sara today. She was wonderful , enthusiastic and knowledgeable about this Usonian Wright family home.‬

‪Not far from Fallingwater, probably Wright’s most famous house, you will come to Kentuck Knob or Hagan House. The Hagans had a dairy business. They were friends with the Kaufmanns, owners of Fallingwater, so they asked Frank Lloyd Wright to design a house for them in 1953. Mr. Wright was 86 years old at the time. The Hagan’s and their contractor managed to create Wright’s vision by constructing a home of great beauty, dignity, and serenity.

The Hagans lived at the house for 30 years before selling it in 1986 to Lord Peter Palumbo, who has opened the house for public tours. The interior reflects the presence of the current owners, the Lord and Lady Palumbo of London, England, who are dedicated patrons of the arts both at home and abroad. Lord Palumbo served as chairmen of the Arts Council of Great Britain from 1989 to 1994 and sits in the House of Lords, the Upper Chamber of the British Parliament.

Our tour guide was Jennifer. You could tell that she really enjoyed telling visitors about the home and she knows it well. Kentuck Knob is a compact, one-story Usonian house designed on a distinctive hexagonal module. An open floor plan, cantilevered overhangs, and great expanses of glass further integrate the property’s indoor and outdoor spaces. The home was designed to fit into its setting as it is built into the hillside and is built of natural materials; tidewater red cypress, glass, and native sandstone. The roof is completely made of copper and has weathered to a nice patina. They do not allow photographs to be taken inside. A sculpture park has been integrated with the woodlands and informal gardens surrounding the house. All in all, we really enjoyed our tour.‬

‪This place is truly amazing. We toured the inside but are only aloud to film outside. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. The gift shop is fantastic. We ended up purchasing a Frank Lloyd Wright clock to take home.‬

‪After hiking at Ohiopyle State Park, I needed something to do that was restful. I called and confirmed they had availability at Kentuck Knob. (It's just a few minutes up the road from Ohiopyle.) FYI: No backpacks on the tour! We took a shuttle bus up to the house and had a guided tour. I visited Fallingwater several years ago and enjoyed this tour very much. At the end, you can take the shuttle bus back or walk back past some outdoor sculptures. I walked back and enjoyed it. Expensive but highly recommended for Frank Lloyd Wright fans.‬

‪Showed up early and was accommodated respectfully by the staff. Had a insightful guide (Jason) who answered questions about the house, the artwork, the current owner, etc. Encouraged the sculpture walk and was very well versed in the history and architecture of the house. Even the youngest enjoyed the tour and the details of FLW's style.‬

‪Driving home from vacation through Pennsylvania recently, my wife and I knew that Fallingwater was closed, but hoped to find another attraction in the area. When we saw that another, less publicized Frank Lloyd Wright house was near Fallingwater, we decided it was worth seeing.
Kentuck Knob is certainly less renowned than Fallingwater, but should be considered (based in part on comments by the docent who led our tour) as a companion piece to Fallingwater. The tour shows visitors the exterior and most of the interior of the house, at a pace that allows visitors to see all of the key design features. Even those like us who are not intense students of Wright’s work can appreciate his conception of the design of the house and grounds. In addition, at the end of the tour visitors are directed to a clearing that affords spectacular views of the surrounding Laurel Highlands area. Kentuck Knob is well worth the drive to see a distinctive work of architecture.‬

‪We had to buy tickets in advance online and we're limited to the number that could visit. We had a large group and had to stagger times so everyone could get through.

We recommend walking the path back to the gift shop and going to the overlook. It is beautiful. Even if it is raining, just take your umbrella. You take a bus ride up to the house.

Tour guides are informative and friendly.

Kentucky Knob is privately owned, but the owner allows tours.‬
