Search Chalk Hill Pennsylvania

Kentuck Knob represents a refinement of the many principles of organic architecture explored by Frank Lloyd Wright throughout his long career. Designed in 1953 for the I.N. Hagan family of Uniontown, Pennsylvania, Kentuck Knob was constructed by local craftsmen whose skills earned the confidence of Mr. Wright himself. The home is built on a hexagonal grid, and is constructed entirely of tidewater red cypress and native fieldstone. An open floor plan, cantilevered overhangs and great expanses of glass artfully integrate the outdoor and indoor spaces. A sculpture park has been integrated with the woodlands and informal gardens surrounding the house, providing an additional attraction for the visitor.
