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




Eventually the Federalist style ran its course. Here's the stylistically eclectic Hastings Mansion, restyled in 1890 for Daniel Hastings, who became governor of Pennsylvania in 1895. Like the big office blocks, it was built at the town's economic and psychological apogee. True, the town's population was only 4,200 in 1900, compared to 6,300 in 2000, but the earlier town was the center of an industrial region, while the later town was an appendix to the much larger State College, ten miles to the south. Symptomatic of that decline, the Hastings Mansion was eventually subdivided into eight apartments.
