Built on land originally owned by 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 two apartments above. The apartments were renovated into one 3200 sq ft home in the 1990s by a previous owner and it feels like a french farmhouse, but it happens to be on top of a warehouse, with picturesque views of the river, town, trees and mountains.
In the Spring of 2020, we are planning to open an espresso shop & store in the storefront of the building, and we will host an Artist Residency program, that will fill our new 3,000 sq ft gallery with art. We are also on planning a 4,000 sq. ft maker space to come online in the summer of 2021.
The Owner's, 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.
What our Guests are Saying
We stayed at this great place during our trip to Fallingwater and Ohiopyle State Park. Suzanne’s place was a great location and we enjoyed our stay. There’s a lot of history in that building and I am excited to see what it becomes!
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!
