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 planning to open an espresso shop & store in the storefront of the building, and we will host an Artist Residency program (starting in winter 2020/21), 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!!!!!
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.
