Historic Markers



Bellefonte has a long and rich history, well-documented by the many state Historical markers all over town. Take the tour online, but also find the time to come and visit in person. There's so much more here than you can see in small pictures.

Valentine Mansion Fire


DSC_1287.jpg

Fire claims the 1870 Robert Valentine Mansion, corner of Allegheny and Curtin streets in historic Bellefonte. Volunteer fire crews battled the blaze for several hours, from after midnight until after dawn in an attempt to save as much of the structure as possible. These photos are by Bellefonte's own Mark Houser.

The Balcony after the fire808 viewsThe fire was contained at about 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2006. All that remained of the front of the building was the balcony and the right corner near Spring Creek. This was taken about 4 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon. Fire still smoldering. And the balcony was pulled down later that evening. Photo by Joanne Tosti-Vasey.

Saving the Jabco Building898 viewsI wanted to portray the efforts of the firefighters to save what they could. These two men were wetting down the Jabco building (an old-fashion country store) next door to the Bush House. They started watering it a 8 am when embers hit the roof and it started smoldering. The water was pumped from the old canal raceway. Thanks to their efforts, the Bush House was the only building we lost. Photo by Joanne Tosti-Vasey.

Bob and Tammi Schuster’s “Our Fair Lady” Bed-and-Breakfast, 313 East Linn Street1175 viewsIn 1883, John Ardell, a Bellefonte lumberman constructed the magnificent house (the style dubbed “painted lady” by Victorians) of the finest local hardwoods, including chestnut clapboards, black walnut front door and banister-railing, poplar pocket doors with original hand-stippling and red and white oak floors.

Burke-Home.jpg
Dr. Kevin and Carol Burke home, 299 West Linn Street 1192 viewsA perennial favorite is the impressive red brick Burnside/McCoy house built for Judge Thomas Burnside in 1869. A small summer house and servant’s quarters built behind the main house share the enormous landscaped lot that fills the entire block between West Linn and West Curtin Streets and is actually more easily approached from West Curtin Street.

Fisherhouse.jpg
Molly Fisher home, 177 East Linn Street1030 viewsThe five-bay Georgian-style house was built by one of the Criders—one of whom built the 1889 Crider Exchange building on North Allegheny Street. Perhaps Fountain William commissioned the house since, certainly, one of his children Burns Crider lived there for a time in the mid-nineteenth Century. Molly and Jay Fisher restored the house in the 1990s...Nov 02, 2008

Cecil and Sally Houser home, 716 North Allegheny Street979 viewsChristmas is in the air as Nativity sets fill the family room, Old World Santas, the living-room and sitting room. Snowmen occupy the first floor bedroom and Nutcrackers the kitchen of Cecil and Sally’s beautiful, meticulously kept house. Evidence of Cecil’s labors on behalf of the American Bald Eagle as a volunteer monitor for the North Central Region is on view. When Christmas is not the season, miniature lighthouses are displayed on the shelves of the family-room addition built by Robert and Delores Nellis when they lived in the house. Nov 02, 2008
ReynoldsMansion.jpg
Reynold’s Mansion (Joseph and Charlotte Heidt’s home), 101 West Linn Street1175 viewsThe thirty-room mansion was built in 1884-85 for Major William F. Reynolds in Queen Anne-style with dashes of High Victorian Gothic, Italianate and Second Empire Baroque added by the unknown architect. Its construction of red sandstone required twenty Italian stone-masons and an army of other artisans to construct the stained-glass windows, paint the exquisite ceilings and install the hardwood floors.
