One of Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous works, Fallingwater, is the third destination planned for the Conference. This architectural marvel nestled in the Laurel Highlands was designed as a private residence for department store magnate Edgar J. Kaufmann. The group will enjoy lunch and gift shopping at the Summit Inn with a spectacular view overlooking a ten county area. Log on to for more exciting activities to be announced in the upcoming months.
