In 1953, I.N. and Bernardine Hagan purchased 89 acres in the Laurel Highlands of Western Pennsylvania. After falling in love with Fallingwater, they commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design a house for them. Kentuck Knob is one of the last homes to be completed by Wright.
Designed on a hexagonal module, Kentuck Knob is a one-story Usonian house - a signature design of Wright. Both dramatic and serene, the house is situated just below the crest of a hill and appears almost part of the mountain itself. An open floor plan, cantilevered overhangs and great expanses of glass effortlessly integrate the inside with the outside.
Additional attractions for the visitor include a magnificent view of the Youghiogheny River Gorge, a woodland trail, and sculptures integrated into the landscape by contemporary artists such as Claes Oldenburg, Sir Anthony Caro, Andy Goldsworthy, and many others.
