About Tissue Farm

Screen Shot 2019-06-04 at 8.11.38 AM

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.

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.

      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.

      We really enjoyed our short stay at the Tissue Farm with Suzanne and Pope. The history of the property was enthusiastically shared, including a tour, by Pope. Suzanne and Pope were very welcoming and great conversationalists!

    The bed, sheets and pillows were very comfortable and the bathroom spotless. The steam heating, as warned, can be a bit load (a hissing noise) so the earplugs provided are appreciated.

    It’s a beautiful, windy drive to Fallingwater, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpieces and was a great stop before our tour. We hope to visit again!

      I know it will be great but I don’t know it’s actually super great . For Female traveling solo on a gab trail like me , I need safe ,clean,comfortable space after the long ride . Pope and Suzanne ‘s place ticks all the right boxes.
    The room is very clean and actually I’m not bothered by the the train that run close to the property at night .I’m a very light sleep but I don’t need earplugs at all . The hosts however left them in the room if you want to use .
    Great hosts with high hospitality on the very cute ,laidback town . You will so fall in love with them that you will have plan to go back already !
