Trinity Autumn House Tour Chairpersons - 2015

Beans House
Beautifully located on one of Solebury's most scenic roads, this 18th-century style manor home is surrounded by panoramic views of meadows, gardens, and nearby Honey Hollow Pond. A complete remodel in 2014 combines historic and contemporary interior design elements to create spaces for comfortable yet sophisticated family living. This meticulously crafted home and its numerous outbuildings reflect the quiet elegance of a bygone era

The Lukens Thomas Mansion
This Greek Revival mansion with direct river views was built in the 1850s by Lukens Thomas, a prosperous mill owner and lumber merchant. Sold in 1859 to the Tinsman Brothers, the home remained in the Tinsman family until 2013, and has since been carefully restored following Charles Weiler's design inspiration. The result is the stunning integration of old world charm with modern amenities.

The Barn
The Barn was built in Wrightstown in 1814 and moved by the previous owners to Solebury in 2002. During reconstruction, the footprint of the original four bent barn was extended to accommodate more living spaces. Situated on 3.25 acres on Primrose Creek, the property delights and surprises with its unique architecture, natural surroundings, and abundance of daylight streaming in through many large windows.

The Lumberville Church
Built in 1870, for the Lumberville Methodist Episcopal Church and repurposed in the 1990s as a private family home, this property boasts stunning views of the Delaware River and magical interior lighting entering from all directions through banks of oversized antique glass windows. A young family blends an active contemporary lifestyle with the history and craftsmanship of an antique structure.

Harvest Moon Farm
The original farmhouse dates to the 1790s. The current residence, renovated in 2004, uses the original stone bank barn for interior walls, and incorporates weathered barn siding and exposed beams to create a modern, comfortable, barn-like living atmosphere. Cozy yet large-scale family and entertainment areas combine with unobstructed long distance views to reward the eye from every angle and space.

Pipe Organ Lecture and demonstration from 11:30 A.M. AND 2:00 P.M. at Trinity Church. In the Anglican tradition, the pipe organ is the foundation of the worship service. A special lecture and demonstration will be conducted by Tim Harrell featuring Trinity's hand-crafted Opus 17 pipe organ. Tim will talk about the organ's special design and musical elements and you will hear pieces specially selected to highlight the range and beauty of the organ. Tim has been Organist/choirmaster at Trinity Episcopal Church Solebury since 1998, and has also served in various capacities for Choral Union at Lehigh University; Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Trenton, NJ; St. John's Episcopal in Olympia, WA; and Doylestown Presbyterian Church. Tim graduated with a B.S. in Organ Performance from Old Dominion University, and a M.M. in Organ Performance & Church Music from Westminster Choir College in Princeton


The Trinity Sanctuary (c. 2000) will be open for viewing during the Tour. This beautiful structure complements the original 1870 campus, incorporating elements of traditional Anglican and Quaker architecture, and is part cathedral, part barn, part theatre. Many artistic appointments created by Parish and local artists, including the Nakashima altar, will be featured.
