Christian W. Klay Win
With fertile lands surrounding much of Uniontown, it is only natural that people would take advantage of it all. Only a few miles southeast of town is the Christian W. Klay Winery. Originally established in the mid 1980s, the winery is run by two former New York wine makers who saw what the Pennsylvania grapes have to offer. The winery features many events throughout the year to celebrate each season and draw in vendors from around the area. While many of these events cater towards people, such as Mystery Weekends and cook-offs, the winery also offers some special days for dog lovers.
Uniontown residents making the short drive to the Bear Run Natural Reserve will be treated to an architectural wonder. Fallingwater is a house-turned-museum designed by famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Visitors will be amazed at how the house appears to float above the water unsuspended. The museum features several tour packages, with one including a brunch inside the home. Guests are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes as the tours are lengthy, while leaving backpacks and cameras behind. Fallingwater is open all year long, except in the cold months of January and February.
Architect Frank Lloyd Wright had a soft spot for the wilderness surrounding Unionville. Just south of town lies one of his most famous constructions in a home he designed known as Kentuck Knob. Nature lovers will be left in awe of the natural features around the structure constructed of mostly wood and stone. On the same grounds is a well-stocked gift shop, as well as a cafe. Kentuck Knob is open at various times during the warmer months of the year. Visitors are encouraged to visit the nearby Fallingwater site to purchase tickets or make arrangements for tours through the home's website.
