Polymath Park originated in the 60’s when two entrepreneurs from Pittsburgh, Mr. Balter and Mr. Blum entrusted Frank Lloyd Wright’s apprentice, Peter Berndston with the task of designing them each a home in the mountains on a plot of 130 acres they purchased. Now, almost 60 years later, the homes are owned by the Papinchak family along with their home they repurposed into what is known as Treetops Restaurant, and both of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Duncan House from Lisle, IL and Mantyla House from Cloquet, MN. Like Mr. Wright’s other homes in the area, Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob, each home and restaurant, employs his works of incorporating nature into his designs. Polymath Park is unique as it provides an even greater experience of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work by offering overnight accomodations.
Check out their website for more information and history of how two homes built into the mountains, turned into four homes and a restaurant. Here you will also find more information on their hours and pricing.
