world pictures The Eastern United States: Harrisburg, Bellefonte, and Boalsburg




Bellefonte had become the seat of Centre County in 1806, when the state legislature was somehow persuaded that Bellefonte was the head of navigation on Bald Eagle Creek. Milesburg was then doomed, despite the fact that no boat ever came up Spring Creek other than the one dragged past Milesburg to support Bellefonte's claim. A courthouse was built, and this grand porch added in 1835; the cupola came in about 1850. Most of the rest of the building was later replaced, but the porch stands as built, a monument to the town's ambition.
