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 are opening 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.
What our Guests are Saying
The Tissue Farm House is such an eclectic and unique property. We were pleasantly surprised by the overall aesthetic and vibe of the space. Pope was there to greet us and gave us helpful information on how to make the most our of our stay. We decided to take a day trip to Ohiopyle by bike and saw so many gorgeous things (highly recommend!) From the moment we booked and throughout our stay, Pope was very responsive, which allowed for us to plan easily.
There were so many touches and pieces of art that really elevated the space. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. This is the first time I booked a shared property and was pleasantly surprised by how private it felt. Even though the property has a lot of history and is an older building, the renovations and work that Suzanne and Pope did to make it what it is today is something magical and worth seeing. 10/10 would recommend!!!!!
Stayed for 1 night while biking the GAP. Great place close to the trail. Very clean. Friendly host. Right next to a great dive bar with cold beer and good food. Definitely would stay again.
Visited in mid-September and arrived in time for dinner. Suzanne helped me find somewhere to get food. Since it’s the off season there were limited options, but I appreciated the help.
First off, Pope and Suzanne are wonderfully responsive. Pope and Suzanne’s Tissue Farm building, site and location are historically impressive and well situated for hiking, bike touring, and kayaking among other activities. The Tissue Farm is wonderfully clean and tidy with great common space to read or let your mind wander. Given Pope and Suzanne’s creative energy, I would happily stay in Confluence, PA again and Tissue Farm would be top of my list.
