Notes on the Geography of The Eastern United States: Harrisburg, Bellefonte, and Boalsburg: Photo 22
A block to the north, the Crider Exchange was built in 1889 with an iron frame, lots of windows, and fish-scale, pressed-metal sheets between them. The architect was the locally prominent J. Robert Cole, and the building was conceived from the start as a combination of shops and offices. Its future, like that of the rest of the town, was not to be a happy one.

The last furnace closed in 1915, and the town entered a protracted decline.
