The homes of Bellefonte. Have a picture of one of our mansions, or of a special example of Victorian architecture? You can post it here. This is a good place for photographers, both amateur and professional, to show off a little.

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.

Daffodils in Talleyrand Park, Bellefonte 2005617 viewsThis view is of one small part of nearly 15,000 daffodils that were planted in and around Talleyrand Park by a group of volunteers in the fall of 2004. Part of "Bellefonte in Bloom: Project Daffodil", a joint effort of the Bellefonte Garden Club and the Bellefonte Area Chamber of Commerce, the 5-year plan is to plant 30,000 daffodil bulbs (at a minimum) each year. Planning is under way for the second year's effort, and interested people are urged to call the Chamber office (814-355-2917), or the project coordinators (814-353-1456) to volunteer, make a donation (tax deductible), or to inquire about obtaining free bulbs if there is a surplus this year. Future years will provide more free bulbs to individuals, businesses and community groups who agree to plant in and around Bellefonte.

Dr. Kevin and Carol Burke home, 299 West Linn Street 1213 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.

Molly Fisher home, 177 East Linn Street1056 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 Street1001 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
Reynold’s Mansion (Joseph and Charlotte Heidt’s home), 101 West Linn Street1198 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.

Bob and Tammi Schuster’s “Our Fair Lady” Bed-and-Breakfast, 313 East Linn Street1196 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.Nov 02, 2008
