The lumber yard is nestled in a quaint pocket of Solebury township along the Delaware canal and the Paunacussing Creek with barns rich in history strewn throughout the lush landscape.
In the 1890’s, this old mill was in full operation. The dam on the Paunacussing Creek aided in diverting water flow to the mill where it turned water wheels which powered the saws for the sawmill. Freshly milled lumber was transported by horse and wagon via bridge over the Delaware River to the railroad depot in Raven Rock. There, the lumbermen loaded the railroad’s flat cars for delivery throughout the quickly growing industrialized country.
Today, Tinsman’s works with Lumber and Building Material manufacturers around the country to bring you the finest materials available and can still deliver to you, though now with a truck and driver!
