Kentuck Knob


The "other" FLW house in Southwestern Pennsylvania, Kentuck Knob was lived in as a permanent residence for many years by the Hagan family of ice cream fame. And once you get done walking down the hill on a warm day, an ice cream cone at the visitor center is more than welcome.


According to our guide, cars do not require doors on their garage as they won't run away like a horse.

After the house tour, a meander down the hill through the sculpture garden.

There are two segments of the Berlin Wall on the property but only one is accessible from the path. The other is along the road lading to the house.







A druid circle? I went inside but nothing happened.
