have you ever WONDERED...

What’s the best way to experience the

Laurel Highlands?

One visit to Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands and you’ll see why this is simply a wonderful place. Breathtaking natural scenery surrounds you wherever you go – from the stunning outdoors to renowned cultural and historic sites, special events and more, there is an amazing selection of experiences waiting just for you. Here are a few experiences and new developments that we think are special and worth mentioning. This Guide is published at the height of ski season and we’re excited that Seven Springs Mountain Resort has once again been voted the Mid-Atlantic’s favorite place to ski by the readers’ of Ski Magazine. The resort was also selected by Transworld Snowboarding magazine as having the No.1 Terrain Park and Halfpipe on the East Coast! Nemacolin Woodlands Resort continues to wow guests with its luxurious offerings and amenities. The prestigious Forbes Travel Guide was impressed and has awarded Five Star rankings for both Falling Rock hotel and Lautrec restaurant.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater® will celebrate its 75th anniversary when the house opens for the 2011 season in March (page 20). A series of special events, lectures and exhibitions have been planned throughout the year. A favorite Laurel Highlands destination for generations of families, Idlewild & SoakZone, has been voted the “Best Children’s Park in the World!” by Amusement Today magazine (page 14). Summer thrill seekers will be thrilled to “catch a wave” this season when the park debuts an exciting new addition to its waterpark, a multi-million dollar family wave pool. Most importantly, September 11, 2011 marks the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001. On this day, the National Park Service will open the first phase of the permanent memorial in honor of the courageous passengers and crew of Flight 93 who perished in Shanksville. Read their story (on page 32) and you will be inspired to visit the memorial.

have you ever WONDERED...

If practice really does

Make Perfect?

For 44 years the Pittsburgh Steelers have held their annual summer Training Camp on the beautiful grounds of St. Vincent College in Latrobe, PA – the oldest Benedictine college in the United States. Thousands of Steelers fans from across the country plan their summer schedule around this iconic sports event. No one loves this training camp more than Sports Illustrated’s premier football writer Peter King. “If you’ve read my postcards in the past few years from here, you know I love the place. It’s the perfect training-camp setting, looking out over the rolling hills of the Laurel Highlands in west-central Pennsylvania, an hour east of Pittsburgh. On a misty or foggy morning, standing atop the hill at the college, you feel like you’re in Scotland. The Arnold Palmer regional airport is across the state highway from the school. Classic, wonderful slice of Americana. If you can visit one training camp, this is the one to see,” says King. Training Camp is free, with most practices open to the public between 3:00pm – 5:00pm. Campus parking lots open at 1:30. Be sure and get there early to get a good spot in the designated areas to snag an autograph or two from your favorite players. Don’t miss the special night practice at the Latrobe High School stadium where a small admission fee is charged.

And if you’re driving through Latrobe on your way to the night practice, look for the banners featuring hometown legends, Mister Rogers, Arnold Palmer, and Dr. John K. Brallier who is considered one of professional football’s first paid players. Mr. King sums up the atmosphere during camp. “Two Benedictine monks from the St. Vincent Archabbey watched practice this afternoon. Common sight here, always, the monks in their long, flowing robes, despite the heat, with sandals. They walk over to the practice fields from the seminary or the beautiful basilica. To me, walking around this place is one of the great traditions of the NFL camp tour.” The Steelers Experience takes place on campus and gives fans a taste of training camp through games and exhibits hosted by the team. The Steelers Experience is usually open from 2-6pm. For the 2011 Pittsburgh Steelers Training Camp Schedule, go to www.steelers.com.

St. Vincent College

Return to campus to see these notable sites: Visit the Historic Gristmill where the Benedictine monks continue to mill grain and flour for local bakeries and where students run a charming coffee house. See the Mister Rogers’ exhibit at the new Fred Rogers Center which chronicles the beloved television icon’s life and work. Walk the trails at the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve and enjoy the native plant life and magnificently restored environmental learning barn.

Idlewild features 14 kiddie rides and 19 major rides including two roller coasters and an antique merry-go-round. Games galore, special eateries, and nightly entertainment at the Hillside Theater will keep a smile on your face.

It’s a new WAVE POOL!

The SoakZone keeps getting more wet and wild! Already home to Captain Kidd’s Adventure Galley aqua-structure, more than a dozen waterslides, Lil’ Squirts kiddie pool, a 300-gallon Tipping Bucket, and hundreds of interactive water spray features, it will also feature a brand new family Wave Pool in the summer of 2011. Following a warning signal to alert swimmers, the pool will generate moderate waves at timed intervals allowing swimmers to ride the tide! This new addition takes the excitement of the SoakZone to a whole new level and makes this water park a summer vacation all by itself!

Where to

Play All Day?

Idlewild & SoakZone offers visitors to the Laurel Highlands some remarkable and unforgettable gifts to take home with them – smiles on their faces, laughter in their hearts, and memories that will last a lifetime. It’s no wonder that this family fun spot has been named “Best Children’s Park in the World!” Since 1878, Idlewild has been providing smiles, laughter, and memories longer than almost every other amusement park in the entire United States. Nestled within the Laurel Highlands, just outside of Ligonier, the park is rich in tradition, nostalgia, and natural beauty, and has long been recognized as one of the top destinations for family fun in the country.

rhymes – providing a great chance for parents and grandparents to revisit their youth as they introduce their own little ones to Mother Goose, Goldilocks and many more. The park’s kiddieland, Raccoon Lagoon, is one of the largest and most scenic children’s areas in the country featuring fourteen rides especially designed for small tykes.

At Idlewild, you won’t find mega-thrill attractions that lay claim to being the tallest or fastest, but instead, classic rides that the entire family can enjoy together. The Rollo Coaster, built in 1938, is a long-time family favorite, with just as many moms, dads and grandparents in line with kids as there are teenagers. Set along a rolling hillside at a very modest height of 27 feet and length of 900 feet, Rollo Coaster often serves as a child’s “first real coaster” and parents want to be along for the ride during such a memorable experience.

Although there is a strong focus on entertaining the younger crowd, teens and adults will never feel left out. The park bolsters a roster of nineteen major rides – that pack thrills yet remain tame enough for most children, in addition to a wide array of family entertainment, and plenty of splashing fun at the SoakZone waterpark.

Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood of Make-Believe is a life-sized trolley ride through the popular wonderland made famous on the PBS television series of the same name. Developed especially for Idlewild by Fred Rogers himself, the ride still ranks as one of the park’s must-see attractions because of its unique finale where riders sing a song and hug their loved one riding next to them. A stroll through Story Book Forest is another beloved experience for families visiting Idlewild. Featuring a winding path through a real forest, guests visit cottages and other character scenes from fairy tales and nursery

There’s a unique charm to Idlewild & SoakZone. It has a laid-back atmosphere that invites you to relax. Shady trees, lakes, and the Loyalhanna Creek passing through its center make it compare more to a state park than any other amusement park you’ve ever seen. The center midways are lined with benches and there are plenty of picnic groves where families can enjoy a picnic lunch together as they take a break during their fun-filled day. Quite simply, Idlewild is a place where you can bring your kids and do something FUN and memorable with them, where the lines aren’t long and you don’t have to spend a fortune. With one visit, you’ll clearly see why Amusement Today Magazine named Idlewild & SoakZone Best Children’s Park in the World!

75th Anniversary of Fallingwater®

Main photo: Fallingwater (Courtesy of Western Pennsylvania Conservancy) | Left to right: Duncan House at Polymath Park, Interior of Fallingwater, Kentuck Knob

The Houses of Frank Lloyd Wright Fallingwater is one of an architectural trio. Kentuck Knob is another beautiful house which embodies Wright’s organic architecture and The Duncan House where visitors may experience Wright overnight.

The History of Kentuck knob

Moving Duncan House

In 1953, Bernardine and I.N. Hagan purchased 80 acres in the mountains above Uniontown, where their families had lived for generations. After falling in love with their friends’ home, the Kaufmann’s Fallingwater, they telephoned Frank Lloyd Wright and asked if he would design a house for them. At 86, and hard at work on the Guggenheim Museum in New York, Wright said he could “shake it (Kentuck Knob) out of his sleeve at will” never even setting foot on the site, except for a short visit during the construction phase. This would be one of the last homes to be completed by Wright.

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Duncan House has had a remarkable journey. Built in 1957, The Wright-designed home was dismantled from its original location in Lisle, Il., and moved to Polymath Park Resort. The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, The Progress Fund and the State of Pennsylvania put together a plan with Polymath Park to reconstruct the Duncan House on the Westmoreland County property. The Duncan House is complimented by two other Usonian-style homes that were designed for the original 1960s vision of Polymath Park by Wright’s apprentice, Peter Berndtson. After many months of complex craftsmanship, the home reemerges as a stellar example of Wright’s Usonian designs and the culmination of his magnificent career. The Duncan House is open for tours, overnight stays and special events.

Tours at Kentuck Knob discuss the house and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian architecture and the integration of the house built into the brow of the hill with the landscape. 20

have you ever WONDERED...

How our landscape inspired America’s

Greatest Architect?

To architecture experts, Frank Lloyd Wright was the greatest American architect who ever lived; and to those who appreciate nature, it’s easy to see why the Laurel Highlands magnificent natural landscape inspired Wright’s most famous work: Fallingwater. FALLINGWATER, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most widely acclaimed works, was designed in 1935 for the family of Pittsburgh department store owner Edgar J. Kaufmann. Construction of the house began in 1936, and the house’s acclaim has grown steadily since that time. Today, Fallingwater is considered “One of the 12 landmarks that will change the way you see the world,” according to Travel + Leisure magazine. The year 2011 marks Fallingwater’s 75th anniversary, and numerous special events, exhibits and lectures throughout the year will help to celebrate this significant milestone. Details are available at fallingwater.org. Fallingwater’s website also contains information about standard and indepth tours, residency programs and other offerings. Perhaps better than any single work, Fallingwater exemplifies Wright’s concept of organic architecture: the harmonious union of art and nature. The key to the setting of Fallingwater is the waterfall over which it is built. Historically, the falls were a focal point of the Kaufmanns’ activities, and the family indicated to Wright their desire to locate their weekend house

near them. Much to their surprise, Wright designed the house to rise above the waterfall, rather than face it. The Kaufmanns adopted Wright’s original scheme with few changes. Completed with a guest and service wing in 1939, Fallingwater was constructed of sandstone quarried on the property and was built by local craftsmen. The stone serves to separate reinforced concrete “trays,” dramatically cantilevered over the stream. Fallingwater was the weekend home of the Kaufmann family from 1937 until 1963, when the house, its contents and grounds were entrusted to the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy by Edgar Kaufmann, jr. Fallingwater is the only major Wright work to come into the public domain with its setting, original furnishings and artwork intact. Fallingwater was named the “Best all-time work of American architecture” in a poll of members of the American Institute of Architecture, and it was designated a “Place of a Lifetime” by National Geographic Traveler.

Where to

Find Courage?

This year will mark the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001. On that day ten years ago, four commercial airliners were hijacked in a planned attack against the United States. Two jet liners were flown into the World Trade Center Twin Towers and a third aircraft into the Pentagon. A fourth aircraft, United Airlines Flight 93, crashed into an open field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania in the Laurel Highlands. The 40 passengers and crew of Flight 93 had time to realize that this was unlike any previous hijacking, and they developed a plan to try to take back the plane and not let it reach its intended target, Washington, DC. They succeeded in this effort, but, unfortunately, lost their lives. Congress acted swiftly to authorize a national memorial to commemorate the brave actions of the passengers and crew of Flight 93. A unique partnership was formed that brought together State and Federal agencies, the local communities, families of the passengers and crew, and the American people in creating a memorial to honor the 40 heroes on board Flight 93. The first phase of the memorial will open this year on the anniversary. Visitors will access this new unit of the National Park Service directly off of US Route 30, and will follow a newly-constructed 2 ½ mile access road, leading to a one mile “Ring Road” which encircles the field adjacent to the crash site. The final resting place of the passengers and crew is the heart of the Flight 93 National Memorial, and will remain untouched. After parking, visitors

will be able to view the crash site from the Memorial Plaza. The names of the 40 passengers and crew will be inscribed on the wall of the plaza as it follows the flight path of the plane. At the Arrival Court, visitors will be greeted by volunteer Ambassadors and by National Park Service rangers who will explain the events that occurred on September 11 and the actions of the passengers and crew of Flight 93. On behalf of the Flight 93 National Memorial partners – the Families of Flight 93, the Friends of the Flight 93 National Memorial, the Flight 93 Advisory Commission, and the National Park Foundation – the National Park Service invites you to visit the Laurel Highlands this year to experience a significant piece of our nation’s history; one that we must NEVER FORGET. But our work is not yet done. The next phase of construction, which includes an education and visitor center, is anticipated to be completed in 2014, and we need your help. Join with us and thousands of others to ensure that this important day in our nation’s history is remembered by future generations. To help with the next phase of the memorial please visit www.honorflight93.org.

have you ever WONDERED...

How to Bike

Through the Mountains? Ride the almost level Great Allegheny Passage from Pittsburgh, PA to Cumberland, MD, on a worldclass rail-trail. The trail gently climbs over the Allegheny Mountains, using historic tunnels, viaducts, and bridges to even out the rugged landscape. Continue your journey to Washington, D.C. on the C&O Canal towpath for the “ride of your life,” or get out for a day for a trip you’ll never forget. The trail follows the scenic Youghiogheny and Casselman Rivers. Towns along the way offer food, lodging and small town charm. Whether you bike or hike, you are passing through forests, dramatic rock cuts, and spectacular overlooks.

Looking for a few insider tips? • Whether you bike 10 or 60 miles a day, take time to discover the trail towns along the GAP. These quaint small towns each have their own story…write your own chapter as you experience the hospitality and services each has to offer.

Maybe it’s the wonder of the land, the hospitality of the towns, or the fact that the trip is completed on your own power (or a combination of all three). But the trail is inspiring, it’s personal, and it’s transforming. We hope you’ll join us to experience it for yourself – in fact, bring the whole family! PITTSBURGH 376

• It’s been said that a group of bikers can’t pass an ice cream stand without stopping. This inspired the creation of signature “Trail Town” flavors to honor the culture and heritage of the area. Fun and quirky flavors like Youghiogheny Mud (yum) and Maple City Marvel are available along the way. • The trail is incredibly scenic, no doubt. But there’s been a lot of fun art popping up on and near the trail that interprets the heritage of our region in a whole new way. Be sure to pack your camera to capture murals and sculptures along the route.

• If you like to travel with a lighter footprint, look for members of the Great Allegheny Passage Sustainable Business Network (GAP SBN). These trailblazer businesses are taking both small steps and large leaps toward sustainability and are pretty amazing all around.

• Because the trail was once a railroad, there are train stations and rail cars in these towns that have been restored and rebuilt and now serve as visitor centers. Can you tell which of them is a recently rebuilt replica?

Where to find a charming

Main Street?

Whether you pedal into Rockwood via the Great Allegheny Passage, go there for an overnight stay at the Hostel on Main, or a performance at the Opera House, you’re in for a treat. Judy Pletcher’s entrepreneurial spirit has transformed Rockwood’s Main Street into one of the Laurel Highlands’ most popular and charming trail towns. As the recipient of the Governor’s prestigious Pennsylvania Entrepreneur of the Year award, her efforts have not gone unnoticed. Judy and her husband Terry turned a once vacant, century-old feed mill with an opera house on the top floor into the thriving Rockwood Mill Shoppes & Opera House. This unique venue has become a popular stop for thousands of trail visitors and Laurel Highlands enthusiasts. The vintage building, which was renovated to retain it’s charm, is filled with storefronts including a bakery that sells pastries that are made using Judy’s mother’s famous recipes.

door. The Pletcher’s later came to buy that house which became the perfect setting for Mill Shoppes Antiques.

The moment that visitors open the front door, they are greeted with the aroma of specialty coffees, homemade pizza and soups. A “must-have” is a Rockwood flavor ice cream cone which Judy has specially made by Latrobe Creamery. This sweet treat has a maple base to represent Somerset County’s maple sugar industry; chocolate covered peanuts to represent “rock” and chocolate covered pretzels to represent “wood.”

Judy and Terry’s opening of the hostel brought back another piece of Main Street’s history. They preserved the new hostel’s past by retaining the original tin ceiling and “ice boxes,” and refinishing the original hard wood pine floors and wide plank walls. The sturdy wood shelving that once held dry goods was kept as a place for overnight guests to stash their gear.

When Judy opened the Rockwood Mill Shoppes & Opera House on June 15, 2000 she was unaware that an auction was taking place at the house next

When the connection was made between the Great Allegheny Passage and the C&O Canal Towpath and the opening of the Big Savage Tunnel, Judy began to see a significant increase of trail users stopping in. Later, the former Meyers Grocery building became available next door to Mill Shoppes Antiques, and Judy decided to open a hostel for bikers, hikers and skiers.

The Hostel on Main offers an inexpensive lodging experience in a clean and safe environment, and even provides bedding linens for guests. “I compare it to camping under a roof with amenities,” says Judy.

The Scoop:

Rockwood is accessible via the Great Allegheny Passage, Route 281, 11 miles south of Somerset, or take Route 31 to Trent Road; turn left onto Copper Kettle Highway/Route 653 east. Rockwood Mill Shoppes & Opera House are open year-round. For schedule of entertainment, go to www.rockwoodmillshoppes.com.

The Hostel on Main

The Hostel accommodates 30 guests each night on sets of Ikea® bunk beds. A private, secure room that sleeps six is also available. A common room outfitted with cable television, high-speed internet, games and books along with a kitchen and laundry is also available to guests. For more information, go to www.hostelonmain.com.

the region’s award-winning chefs

A sampling of Laurel Highlands’ culinary treasures would not be complete without mentioning a few of the region’s award-winning chefs. Nemacolin Woodlands Resort Chef Kristin Butterworth is currently the youngest and only female chef to lead a five-star restaurant. Chef Butterworth’s use of local and international ingredients has again garnered the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide, Five Star ranking for the resort for 2011. Chef Mark Henry of Tree Tops, which is located beside the Duncan House – an original Frank Lloyd Wright house that is open to the public as an overnight guest house, won the 2010 “Dish of the Year” at a Pittsburgh culinary competition with the featured Praline and Goat Cheese Cheesecake recipe.

have you ever WONDERED...

The meaning of

Farm-to-Table?

One of the true treasures of the Laurel Highlands is the savory selection of home-grown edibles produced by local farmers. Our region also offers fun and creative culinary events, outdoor markets brimming with fresh-from-the-farm goodies and to top it off, award-winning chefs whipping up fresh and delicious creations at the region’s eateries. Following is a sampling of our culinary offerings: Sample the freshest, most delectable fruit pies that you have ever eaten with a stop at Sand Hill Berries just outside of Mount Pleasant. This beautiful farm, known for its famous red raspberries, sells their popular pies and other goodies at the farm store which is open daily. You can also find Sand Hill set up at the Ligonier Country Market located on the western end of historic Ligonier. The Ligonier Country Market is open on Saturday mornings from Memorial Day weekend through early October. As one of best farmers markets around, it offers an abundant supply of freshly picked flowers, herbs, vegetables, along with artisan breads, gourmet salsas and jams, handmade crafts and more. If you’re headed to Ohiopyle State Park to bike the Great Allegheny Passage or paddle the Youghiogheny River, stop in to Vicki Marietta’s Backyard Gardens on Lincoln Street in Ohiopyle. You’ll want to stock up on a supply of Vicki’s Sweet & Hot Pepper Mustards that are so tasty that they were featured on the Food Network.

Who doesn’t love the taste of a fresh home-grown tomato? Fans of this summer staple will not want to miss the Annual Heirloom Tomato Festival. This unique event takes place in August and is hosted in Scottdale on the grounds of the West Overton Museum; a pre-Civil War village that is the birthplace of coal and coke magnate Henry Clay Frick. Piles of ripe heirloom tomatoes are available for sampling and purchase along with other gourmet food items and crafts. Faranda Farms, located in northern Somerset County, promises guests that they will have a ‘stinkin’ good time at their Annual Laurel Highlands Garlic Festival, also held in August. Of course, there is lots of garlic, guest chefs and a host of good old-fashioned farm activities including hay rides. While in Somerset County – home of the Pennsylvania Maple Festival – pick up some of the county’s signature maple syrup. Even though this annual event is held in early spring, you can always find an abundant supply of the authentic maple syrup at farmers markets and specialty stores throughout the Laurel Highlands year round. Enjoy!

for more delicious options:

Above is just a sampling of the culinary delights you’ll find in the Laurel Highlands. Be sure to click on the Events section of www.laurelhighlands.org for the complete list of wonderful foodie finds.

The historic significance of the Laurel Highlands was cemented by the French & Indian War, a conflict that, to some historians, signifies the actual beginning of the American Revolution. Essentially a dispute over trade and territory between the French and the British, with various Indian tribes aligned with one side or the other, that raged throughout the 1750’s and early 1760’s.

Where to take a

Road Trip?

Whether dirt paths, granite paving stones, tar, asphalt, or concrete, the National Road and the Lincoln Highway are considered two primary routes in America’s transportation history. Today, these two-lane rural routes continue to offer some of the most scenic stretches in the Laurel Highlands. In 1806, Thomas Jefferson signed the Act to build this Nation’s first federally funded highway. Built from Cumberland, MD to Vandalia, IL, the road carried people, goods and services west and east – over 200,000 a year in its heyday. Harper’s Magazine in November 1879 declared, “The national turnpike that led over the Alleghenies from the East to the West is a glory departed... Octogenarians who participated in the traffic will tell an enquirer that never before were there such landlords, such taverns, such dinners, such whiskey... or such an endless cavalcade of coaches and wagons.” In the early 1920’s, the National Road was partially overlaid by Route 40. It was the rebirth of the historic highway’s automobiles, and “touring” came into fashion. In 1921 Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone, and John Burroughs participated in motor camping caravans and traveled to the National Road and the Historic Summit Inn. These have been described as the first notable linking of the automobile with outdoor recreation.

The link between the automobile, the road, and local businesses resulted in this country’s first coast-to-coast highway – the Lincoln Highway. Today, for the most part, we know it as Route 30 in Pennsylvania. Carl Fisher had an idea that would help change how America traveled. Fisher was a man of ideas and a Detroit businessman. His dream for a coast-to-coast road was simple – “Let’s build it before we’re too old to enjoy it.” Often, it was a matter of connecting existing dirt roads from New York City to San Francisco. He partnered with Henry Joy, president of the Packard Motor Company, who soon became the spokesman and spirit of the Lincoln Highway. Many of the travel amenities that we take for granted today were either nonexistent or in early stages of development – an integrated sign system, gas and repair stations, overnight lodging, maps, road surfacing materials, etc. No longer were Americans restricted with train schedules. They could come and go as they pleased in their automobiles.

The Evolution of Two Historic Routes:

• 1811 Construction of the National Road begins in Cumberland, MD. • 1818 National Road completed to Wheeling, WV • 1830’s thru 1850’s Heyday of the National Road; 200,000 travelers/year • 1905 Not a single mile of paved road existed in the United States • 1913 Lincoln Highway route designated from Times Square to San Francisco. • 1926 Construction of Route 40 begins, overlaying portions of the National Road • 1925 17 million automobiles ~ more autos than telephones! • 1930 Final leg of Lincoln Highway paved • 2002 National Road Designated a National Scenic Byway/ All American Road
