Ambler’s Four Mills Barn, built in 1891, was designed by prominent Philadelphia architect of the Gilded Age, Horace Trumbauer, who is known for designing farms of the region and numerous iconic institutions such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Free Library of Philadelphia. Since 1976, the Barn has been Wissahickon Trails’ headquarters and community education space.

In 2022, Wissahickon Trails undertook its renovation for two critical reasons: flood resiliency and an updated accessible facility for programming. Earlier this month, Wissahickon Trails was humbled and honored to accept an award from the Philadelphia Preservation Alliance for this renovation. Accompanied by partners Daedalus Design Build, Kate Cowing, Architect, and Elevate Construction Partnership, the larger team took home the Grand Jury Award: Preservation Works.
