My first stop in Pennsylvania was Mill Run, where I wanted to see Fallingwater, the home Frank Lloyd Wright designed in 1935 for department store magnate Edgar Kaufmann. The home is a National Historic Landmark and the American Institute of Architects named it “best all-time work of American architecture.” It restarted Wright’s stalled career and led to commissions for equally famous works in his later years such as the Guggenheim Museum.

The stars, or rather the skies, were not with me however. Thunderstorms and street flooding washed out my Fallingwater tour. An ironic turn.
