About Tissue Farm

Screen Shot 2019-06-04 at 8.11.38 AM

Built on land originally owned and farmed by our namesake Captain William Tissue (of the Revolutionary Army) this 1940s brick warehouse was built on the rock foundation of the former Confluence Hotel that was on this spot form 1882-1941; it was built to be an auto dealership and garage with a 3200 sq ft home above. It feels like a french farmhouse mixed with a NYC loft that just happens to be on top of a warehouse, with picturesque views of the river, town, trees and mountains.

We've opened an espresso shop in the storefront of the building, and we will host an Artist Residency program (starting in winter 2022), that will fill our new 3,000 sq ft gallery with art.  Also, our new 4,000 sq. ft maker space is up and running and ready to build art!  Come join us!

Owners Suzanne and Pope, are both artists, and having a gallery & residency program has been a long time dream of theirs.  They purchased the building in early 2019, and moved across country from Seattle to fulfill this dream in this lovely borough on the misty mountains of Appalachia.

Tissue Farm is a five minute bike ride (.8 of a mile) from the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) Trail in Confluence, 26 minutes (15 miles) by car to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and 23 minutes (13 miles) to his later home, Kentuck Knob. Whitewater rafting, fly fishing, hiking, biking, and skiing are all very close by.

      We loved staying at Suzanne and Pope's place. It's in the perfect location for everything we wanted to do during our trip. The bed was incredibly comfy, the sun room was perfect, and having morning coffee was so convenient, not to mention delicious! Suzanne, Pope, and Giovanni were wonderful hosts. We will definitely say with them again when we are in the area!

      Suzanne and Pope made us feel so welcome, both to their home and to Confluence. Pope gave us a tour of their historic building and provided us with a flavor of the area. Very comfortable accommodations, coffee and tea available anytime, bikes secured inside. Thoroughly enjoyed talking with them. Such wonderful hosts.
