Need some clarification:

Heinz has the address as Johnstown, PA while Storer has it n Lisle, IL.

Is it still in Illionois? thanks

Rosalyn,

No, the house is neither in Lisle, IL or Johnstown, PA. The Johnstown plan did not work out. It is being reconstucted at Polymath Park in Acme, PA (near the Donegal exit on the PA Turnpike and fairly close to Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob). Their website does not yet indicate that the reconstruction is completed.

Thanks for the info. Now I have to cut Lisle from my route. Why was the house move from Lisle? thanks

After Mr. Duncan's death the property was sold to a developer who planned to build three or four houses on the site. The house was sold to a man from Johnstown PA who disassembled and moved it with the intent of reconstruction in a local park. Plans fell through regarding the site and the house was sold to the owner of Polymath Park. Reconstruction began in 2006, though I'm not sure of the current status.

Donald Duncan House in PA - Polymath Park opens May 2007

Post by Rupe33 »

Stumbled onto this site while seeking info about Polymath Park, having seen a billboard for it while out at Fallingwater this past weekend. Looks like the Donald Duncan house has ended up in PA after all... check out their website at polymathpark DOT com (cannot send a link on my first posting here)



The billboard said "Opening May 2007."



Cheers,

Rupe
