Also, if it happens to work out time-wise for you - you may want to consider taking the Tech Tour at Pope (they hold them on the first Sunday of each month). You get the run of the place for a few hours - and can take pictures inside, too.
I went last year and have exterior images only:

It's a great little gem. So simple. yet complex.
This beautiful Marine Corps Chapel in Quantico, VA, done in the manner of Fay Jones and/or the Air Force Academy Chapel looks like it would be worthy of a visit while you are on your trip to the D.C. area.

If you are touring Fallingwater, do not miss out on the chance to see Kentuck Knob as well. It is only about 20-30 minutes away from Fallingwater, and it would be a shame not to experience this beautiful Usonian as well. For your sake, I hope you can find time to fit KK into your itinerary. Have a great trip and a great time.
If you do make it through Central Ohio, where I live, in addition to the Westcott House, which is great, here are a few other suggestions:
Louis Sullivan Bank-Newark, OH
Rush Creek Village-Worthington, OH
Louis Sullivan Bank-Sidney, OH
Meyers Medical Clinic-Dayton, OH
All of these destinations are within a reasonable distance of I-70, which I would think might be your route through Central Ohio, and are well worth seeing. BTW, where is home?

Paul - my wife and I went on the tour last year (and had the pleasure of enjoying it w/ the company of Wright Chat's own 'Wrightgeek' & Palli & Michael). There were no interiors as part of it and we were told that they no longer include them when giving the annual tour.
