Field Trip to the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania

    On the weekend of April 4th and 5th, B-CCC will be traveling to the beautiful Laurel Highlands of southwest Pennsylvania.   We will visit two houses designed by famed archetect Frank Lloyd Wright, and will visit other sites of interest in the area as well.

Here are some of the details:

   On Saturday morning at 10:00, we will tour Kentuck Knob.  This Frank Lloyd Wright house does not allow photography indoors at all. We will be permitted to spend as much time on the grounds taking pictures as we like.  In addition to the (outside of the) house itself, we can photograph scenic views from the grounds, as well as a lot of interesting items on the property.  The price for the "regular" tour is $16.00 for adults, and $10.00 for children 6-12.  Children under the age of 6 are not permitted in the house.

     On Sunday, we will visit Fallingwater.   At this very well-known house, we will be able to take and "in-depth" tour, at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday.  This tour lasts about 2 hours, It includes all of the major rooms of the house, plus secondary spaces not available on the regular tour, smaller group size, and extended interpretation. Children must be 9 years old and must accompany adults on this tour. Still photography only is permitted on this tour. This tour must be reserved in advance, and I have already done that.  We can have a maximum of 18 persons, and this will actually be divided between two different tours, starting 15 minutes apart.  The cost for this tour is $55.00, but I think well worth it considering all we get.  If you would prefer, of course, you can always take the regular tour, which does not require advance reservations.     No tripods are permitted in the house.   Once again, we will have as much time as we want to photograph the grounds.

   On both days, after our house tours, we can sort of "ad-lib" the day.  There is plenty to see and do in the area, and I will be happy to guide you in that respect. 

   I have a list of lodgings in the area, and more information as well.   If you are interested, contact me by e-mail at:  vincentferrari@gmail.com, or call at 301-249-2210.
