Born: 1849, Died: 1938

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.
