Notes on the Geography of The Eastern United States: Harrisburg, Bellefonte, and Boalsburg: Photo 43
The town lost its role as a transportation node when it was bypassed by railways and highways. The economy shifted to agriculture and eventually to university jobs in State College. The town has done well since then, not only from its location but because, as an official survey declares, "the town projects an architectural cohesiveness, through the predominance of Georgian and Victorian forms, which few communities can boast today."
