Lansdale architect, Milton B. Bean is chiefly known as the architect of the "Lindenwold Castle" for Dr. Richard V. Mattison of Ambler, PA. Bean also designed Trinity Memorial Church (1898-1901) in Ambler for Dr. Mattison, who commissioned the church in honor of his daughter, who had died in 1887 of typhoid fever. A third building attributed to Bean in Ambler was the Ambler Gazette Building (which had been destroyed by fire in 1896 but for which Bean designed a new building, open in 1897).
Bean's prolific career is reflected in numerous references from the Philadelphia Real Estate Record and Builders Guide.
