Just six miles off Fallingwater, is Kentuck Knob, a single-storied compact Usonian house, constructed on a hexagonal module. Serene but striking, Kentuck Knob stands more than 2,000 feet above sea level. It was constructed using tidewater red cypress and native sandstone that blends naturally with the surrounding. Cantilevered overhangs, an open floor plan, and great glass expanses further enhance the look of the house.

Also known as SAMARA, this house was built for Purdue University professor John Christian and his wife Catherine. It’s an inviting and bold example of Wright’s Usonian architecture, on a decidedly modest budget. SAMARA stands as a monument of Wright’s dedication to his clients and a testament to innovative design philosophies. Tours of the property and its surroundings are carried out from April to November.

It’s a National Historic Landmark and has now been restored to a museum.
