Town&Gown’s 2017-2018 Guide to Neighborhoods

Each July, the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts focuses the entire community on art and entertainment.


Penn State

holds a fall festival full of tempting treats. State College turns into an outdoor museum each July when the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts takes over downtown, and ice sculptures abound when First Night State College rings in the new year. It’s just a short drive from Centre County to regional destinations that offer additional opportunities for fun. Go boating at expansive Raystown Lake, or ski the slopes of Blue Knob. Explore local history at the Railroaders Museum in Altoona, or watch modern-day trains navigate the impressive Horseshoe Curve. Visit Little League world headquarters in Williamsport, or spend a day touring area wineries. You also can expand your outdoor options with many more state parks, forests, and natural areas, all within an hour’s drive of Centre County.

Schools, Jobs & Travel

Beaver Stadium is the place to be on fall Saturdays when Penn State’s Nittany Lions have a home football game.

Why do so many people who could live anywhere choose to live in Centre County? Maybe it’s our strong housing market, good access to health care, stable economy, and myriad cultural and recreational activities. Maybe it’s our healthy environment and beautiful mountain-and-valley scenery. These are all reasons why we love Centre County – and why we’re sure you’ll love it here as well.

The Great Outdoors

We’re a rural county with fresh air, forested mountains, sparkling streams, and friendly neighbors. The geography of Centre County lends itself to natural beauty that seems to present a different picture around each bend. Many of our rolling mountains are protected as state forests, meaning they’re an undeveloped backdrop of soothing green in the summer and spectacular autumn hues each fall. Racing down the mountainsides are crystal-clear streams, filled with trout that attract fly-fishing fans from around the world. Between the mountain ridges lie fertile valleys dotted with family farms, many of them operated by Amish who take care of the land the old-fashioned way. Our active farming heritage means fresh produce at local farmers’ markets as well as restaurants with farm-totable menus. Because Mother Nature was so good to Centre County, opportunities abound for outdoor recreation throughout our 1,108 square miles. Hiking trails wind up and down mountains, with lots of stops for scenic vistas. Both our flat valleys and sloping mountainsides attract bikers, and the State College area has constructed bike trails suitable for the whole family. Downhill skiers and snowboarders flock to Tussey Mountain Resort

in winter, while six state parks offer quiet spots for outdoor activities the whole year round. That same geography will probably influence your choice for a new home. You might choose a country home with a large yard or even a few acres to spread your wings. Get away from it all with a forested retreat, or move into a home that provides easy commuting via one of our interstate highways. Purchase a carefully restored Victorian house in one of our towns or villages, or build the new home of your dreams. No matter what is happening nationally, real estate is always locally driven. That’s great news for Centre County, where our stable economy supports a reliable housing market.

Close to the Action

Explore the more remote areas of our county, and you’ll feel a million miles away from the rest of the world. No matter how far away you get, though, you’re still no more than half an hour from many of the finer things in life. In State College, Penn State makes Broadway musicals, opera, ballet, and jazz accessible for everyone. We have our own symphony, theater organizations, and choral groups. Visual arts from around the world are on display at the Palmer Museum of Art, and the strong fine-arts program at the university helps provide us with an inspiring community of local artists. Almost every town in Centre County has something to celebrate, and they generally throw an open invitation to everyone around. Bellefonte has the Big Spring Festival — which is held both in the springtime and near the spring (or “fonte”) that gives the county seat its name. Philipsburg honors more than 200 years of history with its annual Heritage Days, while Boalsburg celebrates its claim to fame as the birthplace of Memorial Day. Haines Township

Because our largest employer is a university, education is very important throughout Centre County. Five school districts (and parts of two others) are based here, offering both smallschool friendliness and large-school variety. Several charter schools present opportunities to children with special educational goals. Graduation from high school and college doesn’t mean that learning is over here — the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute allows mature adults to explore diverse interests at a modest cost. In addition to Penn State University, Centre County is home to a wide, stable base of employers in clean industries, many of them high-tech. Other than government-related entities, no single employer holds a large enough share of local jobs to cause worries when sales slip slightly. In fact, unemployment rates here are among the lowest in the state. No matter what, those 47, 261 Penn State students need us to provide them with food, shelter, and a little bit of fun. Centre County may be “away from it all,” but it’s easy to get here. Interstate 80 crosses the county from east to west, U.S. Rte. 322 takes us easily to the Harrisburg area and then to Washington, D.C., and Interstate 99 gives us a quick route from I-80 to the Pennsylvania Turnpike and beyond. Plus, travel is fast from State College’s University Park Airport, where a full schedule of flights arrive and depart each day. Even our hospital, Mount Nittany Medical Center, is easily accessible at a highway exit, combining local expertise with the advanced techniques of personnel from Penn State’s Milton S. Hershey School of Medicine. With so much to be happy about in Centre County, we’ve found that people like to move here. Everyone seems to know someone who came here for a Penn State football game or Arts Festival and liked it so much that they came back to stay. For the past 30 years, our population has grown an average of about 10 percent each decade, and now more than 160,000 people live in Centre County. (Of course, that’s still only 144 people per square mile.) Buying your own home here is usually a very good investment — in both your financial future and your family’s lifestyle. n Town&Gown’s 2017-2018 Guide to Neighborhoods

New in Centre County

The redeveloped Bellefonte waterfront extends through Talleyrand Park.

Centre County just keeps getting better and better. From new sport facilities to new living options to new ways to have fun, there’s always another reason to make Centre County your home. Downtown State College has three new high rises under construction. Opening in fall 2017 is The Metropolitan, a 12-story apartment building for college students and local professionals, with ground-floor restaurants and retail stores, plus a fitness center and swimming pool. A few blocks away, a Target store and H&M clothing store opened in the new Fraser Centre in 2016. Opening soon in this major complex are a 165room Hyatt Place hotel and conference center and a Federal Taphouse bar and restaurant. Finally, construction has begun on another 12-story apartment building on East College Avenue. Also under construction is a major expansion of State College Area High School. Students will begin using portions of the new building during the 2017-18 school year, phased in as construction is completed.

The State College area has an extensive system of parks and recreation facilities, operated by Centre Region Parks and Recreation. Planning is under way for the Whitehall Road regional park, which is set to include sport fields, picnic pavilions, tennis complex, dog park, preserved woodlot, and trailhead for the Musser Gap bikeway. Near the University Park Airport, developers are approaching construction of the Nittany Valley Sports Centre, an 80,000-square-foot indoor sports facility with turf fields, gymnastics training center, batting cages, and more. In Potter Township, planning is proceeding for the 165-acre Tri-Municipal Park, which may feature soccer and softball fields, playgrounds, hockey rink, fitness trail, and community building. In Bellefonte, a $6 million waterfront redevelopment project was completed in 2016, with a scenic pedestrian area from one end of town to the other along Spring Creek. Along the way, at Talleyrand Park, Wine and Café on the Park began offering wine tasting, and long-range plans are being made for a new hotel.

The great outdoors is always an attraction in Centre County, with so much of the land protected as state forest, park, and game lands. Northern Pennsylvania’s elk herd has begun ranging into Centre County, providing new opportunities for wildlife watching and hunting. In the world of business, entrepreneurship is thriving here, led by technology transfer growing out of Penn State University research, and by students and young professionals who take their own ideas to market. Entrepreneurship is accelerated through ventures such as Happy Valley LaunchBox, which offers free advising, co-working space, and other programs. And, of course, new neighborhoods are under development across Centre County, as described throughout this publication. Wherever you’re planning to make your home in Centre County, you can always count on new developments to maintain and improve our wonderful quality of life.n

Penn State University If you live in Centre County, Penn State University plays a role in your life. From economics to cultural opportunities to atmosphere, the university influences just about everything here. Thanks to PSU, we have arts and cultural opportunities that you wouldn’t normally find in a community the size of Centre County. We can peruse exhibits on everything from world-class art (the Palmer Museum of Art) to rocks and minerals (Penn State Earth & Mineral Sciences Museum). This year alone, we could attend Eisenhower Auditorium performances including Pippin, Rent, and Annie. We also tuned in to performers like Paul McCartney, Kanye West, and Bruce Springsteen at the Bryce Jordan Center. Guest lecturers spark our thoughts in a variety of subjects, and local residents can research their interests at Penn State’s many libraries. We always have something to cheer about, thanks to Penn State’s 31 different intercollegiate sports. The landscape here turns blue and white on home football Saturdays as more than 107,000 fans pour into Beaver Stadium to see the Nittany Lions in action — and this is in a county with only 160,527 residents! State College is the population center of Centre County, mainly because of the 47,261 students who attend classes at Penn State’s University Park campus, and the two-thirds of all jobs here that directly or indirectly relate to those students. Penn State is by far the county’s largest employer, and the university has a direct business impact of $1.4 billion in Centre County each year. Centre County consistently posts the lowest unemployment rate in Pennsylvania, due in large part to the stability of our largest

Penn State’s Nittany Lions took home the 2016 Big Ten football championship.

Penn State FAQs What’s a “Nittany” lion? “Nittany” comes from a Native American term meaning “single mountain.” The Nittany Lion mascot is based on the mountain lions that used to roam Central Pennsylvania. How many PSU students live in Centre County? More than 47,000 students are enrolled at the University Park campus. Some commute from other areas, but most live locally. How can I contact students and staff? Go to www.psu.edu/ph/ and type in the name of the person you’re looking for. You’ll see email, phone, and other contact info the person has listed. Since it’s Penn “State,” it must be a state school, right? Yes and no. Penn State isn’t owned by the state, but it is “staterelated,” and does receive money from the state each year.

State’s TV and radio stations reach 1.3 million households, its Cooperative Extension efforts help 2 million people a year, and its online World Campus teaches students around the world. If you’re new to Centre County, chances are that Penn State already influenced your world even before you considered moving here. Penn State alumni invented the telephone jack, helped write Casablanca, and fathered the modern semiconductor industry. Ninety percent of golf courses worldwide use turfgrass varieties developed here, and ice cream gurus Ben and Jerry got their start from a Penn State correspondence course in ice-cream making. Although the University Park campus is Penn State’s main campus, it’s also just one of many. During the Great Depression of the 1930s, the Penn State Football university began developing multiple campuses so people 2017 Home Schedule across the state could afford a September 2.........................................

employer. Also, Penn State conducts more than $836 million worth of research each year, and many companies spin out of that research to take root locally in the private sector. Having a major, well-respected university in our midst helps improve education at all levels in the county. Our school districts consistently rank above average on standardized tests, and 41.4 percent of residents age 25 and older hold at least a bachelor’s degree. Plus, in addition to teaching those 47,261 students here, Penn State helps educate our community — and others across the state — through the largest outreach effort in American higher education.

Affordable Housing Owning your own home is the American dream. Numerous programs in Centre County help local residents with low to moderate incomes to achieve that dream.

Centre County Affordable Housing Coalition www.ccaffordablehousingcoalition.org Formed in 1996, the coalition has more than 130 members representing more than 60 organizations. The group’s mission is to ensure that all residents of Centre County, especially those with low incomes, have decent, safe, affordable, and accessible housing. The coalition’s "Yes in My Backyard" group supports the development of affordable housing in all area communities. CCAHC also sponsors a local Affordable Housing Summit each fall.

Centre County Association of REALTORS®

ccarinc.realtor Because they spend every day helping people buy homes, members of the Centre County Association of REALTORS® realize how difficult it can be for the general public, public servants, and service personnel to find affordable housing. In response to the growing concern in Centre County to provide affordable housing and to help reduce the financial barriers for individuals qualified for home ownership, CCAR established the Centre County Association of REALTORS® American Dream Housing Fund. The fund is managed through the Centre Foundation.  CCAR partners with existing countybased agencies that assist the members of our communities who will benefit from the fund.

Centre County First-Time Home Buyer Program

www.centrecountypa.gov Since 1996, Centre County’s First-Time Home Buyer Program has provided more than $2 million in assistance to county residents buying their first homes. Participants can receive up to $10,000 or 10 percent of the home’s purchase price, whichever is lower. The home buyer then pays back this nointerest, deferred loan upon reselling the house so the money can be used by future first-time buyers. Participants must have good credit and a gross household income of less than 100 percent of the county’s median income. For a family of four, that means an income below $73,600. For an individual, the income limit is $51,600.

Centre County Housing and Land Trust www.cchlt.org This organization acquired its first piece of property in 2008 – 1.6 acres of the former Mellott Mobile Home Park in Patton Township. The parcel was renamed Thompson Place in honor of Moses Thompson, owner of the property back in the 1840s. The trust worked with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Centre County to establish 10 affordable homes here.

www.habitatgcc.org Habitat for Humanity of Greater Centre County works to build simple, decent, affordable houses for qualified families in need of adequate shelter. Individuals, corporations, faith groups, and others provide financial support, while homeowners and volunteers build the houses themselves, under trained supervision. The houses are sold through a no-profit, no-interest mortgage.

State College Borough First Time Home Buyer Program

www.statecollegepa.us The State College Borough FTHB program offers mortgage and closing cost assistance to both moderate and lower income families in the State College Borough. This typically translates into a home at a monthly cost equal to or lower than rental costs.

State College Community Land Trust

www.scclandtrust.org The State College Community Land Trust helps income-qualified individuals and families purchase homes in the Borough of State College. SCCLT helps reduce the cost of buying a home by splitting the ownership of the property: The homeowner buys the building, while the trust holds the land permanently. This allows the prospective homeowner to apply for a mortgage based only on the cost of the house, reducing the price by as much as 30 percent. n

Among the latest efforts to grow the stock of affordable housing in the Centre Region are: • Opened in 2016, Stonebridge Senior Apartments is comprised of 58 one- and twobedroom units for residents age 55 and older whose incomes meet certain restrictions. Developed by S&A Homes off Bristol Avenue as part of the Stonebridge neighborhood, the complex features some handicap-accessible units, with social services offered by Allegheny Lutheran Social Ministries. • The Borough of State College has developed a new Homestead Investment Program, tasked mainly with turning rental properties near the Penn State campus into owneroccupied housing. Some of the properties the borough purchases through this program will be sold under affordable-housing guidelines. The municipality has allotted an initial $1 million line of credit for this part of the program. • The newly opened Bellefonte Mews features 32 affordable housing apartments in the historic Cadillac Building and Garman House in downtown Bellefonte. After fire damaged the landmark buildings, Progress Development Group renovated them for workforce housing.

Mount Nittany Health

Health Care Centre County residents benefit from many of the excellent health care services you find in larger cities…right here, close to home. That makes it easy to access the care you need, and convenient for family and friends to offer the support you want.

Hospitals

Our largest hospital is State College’s Mount Nittany Medical Center, which is part of the locally based Mount Nittany Health system. The 260-bed acute-care facility offers medical, surgical, diagnostic, and community services, including our local emergency room. The Lance and Ellen Shaner Cancer Pavilion here is home to the Cancer Care Partnership between Mount Nittany and Penn State Health, offering state-of-the-art care for outpatient hematology, medical oncology, and infusion services as well as clinical cancer trials. HealthSouth Nittany Valley Rehabilitation Hospital in Pleasant Gap is a 73-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital for patients recovering from joint-replacement surgery, trauma, stroke, and other conditions. Part of a nationwide network, the local HealthSouth facility has earned Joint Commission certifications for its stroke, brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, and heart failure programs. Meadows/University Behavioral Health is an inpatient behavioral health hospital near Centre Hall. The Meadows offers comprehensive services in age-specific units for children, adolescents, and adults as well as outpatient medication

The Mount Nittany Health Breast Center offers complete mammogram services.

management and therapy, peer support groups, family- and school-based behavioral health services, and mobile crisis intervention.

Clinics & Health Centers

Centre County military veterans can get medical care close to home at the recently expanded James E. Van Zandt Veterans Administration Outpatient Clinic in College Township. The clinic offers services including behavioral health, laboratory services, nutrition services, preventive care, primary care, social work services, tobacco cessation, and prescriptions. Geisinger Health System recently doubled the size of its Gray’s Woods medical center in Patton Township with a new ambulatory surgery

center. One of the region’s major physician groups, Geisinger also operates a local urgentcare walk-in clinic, Geisinger Careworks. Meanwhile, Penn Highlands Clearfield recently opened its new Moshannon Valley Community Medical Building in Philipsburg. Options for urgent care when a condition is not life-threatening are clinics including Advanced Urgent Care, Dr. Paul’s Clinic, and MedExpress. On the university campus, Penn State students have easy access to the nationally accredited University Health Services Student Health Center. Services include immunizations, nutrition clinic, pharmacy, physical therapy, medical care for routine illnesses, physical exams, x-rays, and allergy services. Off campus, the Penn State Health Medical Group operates five local clinics.

Preparing for the Future

Although Penn State’s main campus is in State College, medical students have studied about 90 miles away in Hershey – until recently. The University Park Regional Campus of the Penn State College of Medicine graduated its first cohort of students in 2014 and matched them to residencies across the country. Meanwhile, the University Park Regional Campus and Mount Nittany Health have partnered to develop the Family Medicine Residency Program, which began accepting medical school graduates in 2015. The three-year residency program will help fulfill the regional campus mission of ensuring primary-care providers in Central Pennsylvania for years to come. n

HealthSouth Nittany Valley Rehabilitation Hospital focuses on restoring patient mobility.

The Bald Eagle Area School District is one of the largest in the state, geographically speaking. However, because so much of the land it covers is rural and sparsely populated, its graduating class of seniors is around 110 each year, providing for a nurturing, family atmosphere for students of all ages. Much of the living here is independent — homes dotting the wooded mountains and farming valleys, with privacy easy to come by. The few communities are small and friendly, most with a sense of history dating back to the days when railroads and mining were their reasons for being.

The State College Area School District is the most populous in Centre County, due in part to the area surrounding Penn State University’s main campus. Still, the district stays true to its rural roots, encompassing plenty of farmland and state forest and game lands. This school district has a wonderful multicultural diversity due to the university’s international student and academic populations. The large enrollment means that students enjoy a wide variety of course selections at the high school, where graduating classes average about 600 students.

Students in the State College Area School District attend these schools: 1. State College Area High School (grades 9-12) 2. Mount Nittany Middle School (grades 6-8) 3.

Tax Rates in Centre County Property owners in each of Centre County’s municipalities pay a county real estate tax of 7.84 mills, plus a millage rate charged by their municipality and school district. Wages also are taxed by the municipality and school district in which a person lives. A transfer tax is imposed on the selling price of real estate in Pennsylvania; a tax equal to 1 percent of the selling price goes to the state, and a tax totaling (in most cases) 1 percent is divided between the municipality and the school district. In addition, many municipalities charge a local services tax of $10 to $52 on people who work in the municipality.

Bald Eagle Area

Milesburg is a quaint community along the banks of Spring Creek, convenient to Interstate 80.

1 Clarence Right next door to Snow Shoe is Clarence, with two-story and ranch houses lining Clarence Road as it heads north toward Sproul State Forest. Back in the 1800s, coal mines brought Scottish and then Slovakian immigrants here and, although the mines are gone, European family names still are abundant. 2 Howard Many Centre County residents

know Howard as the gateway to Bald Eagle State Park, with a large lake for boating and new Nature Inn. The borough also is a thriving residential community. Howard is a friendly town that prides itself on its relaxed atmosphere and proximity to many recreational areas as well as a pumpkin-chucking festival in the fall. Howard Elementary School is here.

58

Town&Gown’s 2017-2018 Guide to Neighborhoods

3 Julian The small Huston Township village of Julian is located just off U.S. Rte. 220 and bordering Bald Eagle Creek. Julian is the gateway to the large recreational area of Black Moshannon State Park. It’s also just 11 miles from State College, allowing simple rural living with a scenic commute on the Julian Pike. The Eagle Creek and Hillside developments are here. 4 Milesburg

This borough grew up as a transportation center at the confluence of Spring and Bald Eagle creeks, used for barge traffic hundreds of years ago. Today, the boat traffic is gone, but the creeks remain popular for fly-fishing. Close to an Interstate 80 exit, homes in Milesburg range from historic buildings in the center of town to the popular affordable neighborhoods of Confer Development and Breon’s Court. Milesburg Community Park offers picnic pavillions and playgrounds.

5 Moshannon This Snow Shoe Township

village serves as the junction to Sproul State Forest, state game lands, and the West Branch of the Susquehanna River. Formerly a mill town, Moshannon primarily features pleasant homes with front porches that welcome neighbors to stop by.

6 Pine Glen This village is named after the trees that attracted lumber companies here more than 150 years ago. Several streets of homes date to the 1950s, when a research and development arm of the Curtis-Wright Corporation was planned near here. Houses are on large lots and are primarily single-unit, plus a handful of unique X-shaped quadplex homes. Pine Glen has a township park.


Proven in Customer Satisfaction “ takes the time to get to know you”

“top notch”

“ professional realtor in every sense of the word”

“responsive”

In northern Centre County, Howard residents enjoy having Bald Eagle State Park right in their backyard.

“f lawless”

8 Snow Shoe Snow Shoe grew in the 1800s thanks to coal mines, the railroad, and the area’s popularity as a mountaintop summer resort for Bellefonte townspeople. Today, business centers around the Interstate 80 exit, including a Federal Express center. “Downtown” Snow Shoe is stacked on a hillside with both historic and newer homes. The Mountaintop Area Elementary School, Mountain Top Field, and Mountaintop Area Medical Center are here. 9 Unionville Dating to 1848, Unionville sits at the base of two mountain ridges, with both the Rattlesnake Pike and Unionville Pike winding their way up from the town. Bald Eagle Creek flows through town, making for picturesque yards among the modest homes scattered here. 10 Wingate Transportation has been key to the development of Wingate, which sits in Boggs Township at the intersection of Wallace Run and Bald Eagle Creek, routes 220 and 144, and the Bellefonte & Snow Shoe Railroad and the Bald Eagle Railroad. Several streets of modest homes are near Bald Eagle High School and Wingate Elementary, and the Mountain Valley Diner is among a handful of businesses that cater to residents and travelers. n

“always available”

“stress free” “ knows the market” “ would HIGHLY recommend” “a real credit to his profession”

Let me show you why

7 Port Matilda Squire Clement Beckwith

laid out this town in 1850 and named it after his daughter, Matilda. The “Port” part of the name was wishful thinking, since the Pennsylvania Canal never made it here. Today, the Borough of Port Matilda is at the crossroads of U.S. routes 322 and 220 and Interstate 99, anchored by a market, tavern, post office, Port Matilda Community Park, and Port Matilda Elementary School. Homes range from older bungalows to ranch homes built over the past few decades.

Alissa Pendorf

Bellefonte Borough

Curtin and Linn streets are lined with historic homes in a variety of architectural styles.

1 Curtin & Linn Streets Most of the historic homes Bellefonte is known for are on Curtin and Linn streets, within the National Register Historic District. Once home to ironmasters, industrialists, and other members of Bellefonte’s elite in the late 1800s, the area is now a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood of mainly restored large homes and bed-andbreakfasts. Among the architectural styles represented here are Gothic Italianate, Victorian, and Greek Revival. The oldest homes are closest to Allegheny Street; at the far northeast end, smaller brick homes are just 60 to 70 years old. Prices vary here depending on the level of restoration.

62

Town&Gown 2017-2018 Guide to Neighborhoods

2 Downtown

Most of downtown Bellefonte, from Curtin Street to Logan and from Water Street to Ridge, is in the National Register Historic District. Some of the fine homes in this area now house businesses or organizations; for example, the Georgian-style John Blair Linn home on Allegheny Street is now the Bellefonte Art Museum, and the 1815 MilesPorter home half a block away is the Centre County Library & Historical Museum. Although some of these 10- to 20-room houses have been divided into apartments, others have been lovingly restored to single-unit homes.

3 East End

Consisting mainly of Center Street, this small neighborhood lies off PA Rte. 550 in northeast Bellefonte, across from the entrance to Parkview Heights. These modest homes are convenient to Bellefonte Area High School and Governors Park.

4 Halfmoon Hill

As the name indicates, this neighborhood sits on a hill overlooking Bellefonte from the southwest. This development includes a good mixture of smaller ranches, Cape Cods, and two-stories built around the 1950s and ’60s. Part of the neighborhood extends into Spring Township.

5 McAllister

This neighborhood, extending for several blocks around McAllister Street between Howard and Bishop, has the friendly sidewalks of the downtown area and larger yards of the suburbs. Built about 50 years ago, homes here represent a variety of styles and are mainly brick and well kept. Bordered by the expansive grounds of Bellefonte Middle School, the neighborhood has an open atmosphere.


Parkview Heights Estates

6 North End Bounded by Beaver, Wilson, and Linn streets, this area includes the newer homes of Curtin and Linn streets — newer meaning mid-twentieth century, rather than late nineteenth century. The neighborhood features delightful brick ranches and Cape Cods, sidewalks for strolling and for meeting friendly neighbors, and large yards. 7 Parkview Heights

One of the largest developments in the Bellefonte area, Parkview Heights has a wide variety of home styles built anywhere from the 1950s through the ’90s. Some residences overlook or have easy access to Teener League fields and the local playground. Homes in this northeastern part of town sell mainly in mid- to high Bellefonte market ranges, depending on size, age, and location.

8 Parkview Heights Estates Newer homes of at least 1,800 square feet sit on one-third to one-half acre lots in a subdivision developed by Pinehurst Homes. The neighborhood is set among stands of mature trees, with natural walkways and access to the Teener League fields and playground. Just 1.5 miles from an Interstate 99/Rte. 220 exit, this is a great location for State College commuters.

9 Rainbow Village This pleasant devel-

opment of primarily ranches and Cape Cods is close to Bellefonte Area High School. Built in the ’50s and ’60s, these well-maintained homes have good-sized yards with mature trees and landscaping, all at a reasonable price.

10 South Thomas Street This hidden gem is tucked away off High/Halfmoon Street in southwestern Bellefonte. The street is only about two blocks long, but it’s home to some beautiful Victorian houses that have been carefully restored. South Thomas is a narrow, one-way street heading north, so drivers must enter via St. Paul Street, also one-way but heading south. n

Fifty-three homes are planned for this community, with lots ranging from 0.75 to 5.7 acres and starting at $69,000. Pathways here lead to a stream and state forest lands, and conservation easements on larger lots protect wetlands. Building lots available.

Much of western Ferguson Township remains rural, including many farms.

26 Park Hills There are several parks near 30 Ramblewood I & II this well-established neighborhood of single-unit homes plus contemporary Cedar Knoll townhomes. On a nice little hill, this area has been built up over the decades and contains plenty of towering trees, plus Park Hills Park. Though tucked away, it is near busy Northland Center and other North Atherton Street businesses.

27 Pine Grove Mills This is a pleasant, close-knit community established by Thomas Ferguson in 1791, now with a mix of homes from Victorian to colonial to mountainside retreat. Developments of larger homes are being built on the outskirts. Nestled on the slopes of Tussey Mountain, known here as Pine Grove Mountain, the village is a crossroads for those traveling south and features a tavern, post office, and other businesses. It also is home to Ferguson Township Elementary School and its ballfields. CATA buses serve the area. 28 Pine Hall

This new Fine Line Homes development off Old Gatesburg Road features several large buildings, each with multiple three-bedroom townhomes, priced from $294,900. New units available.

29 Piney Ridge Piney Ridge is north of Rte. 45 just west of Pine Grove Mills. This lovely community boasts ranch and two-story homes on fairly flat land with mature landscaping, close to shopping and restaurants. 76

Town&Gown’s 2017-2018 Guide to Neighborhoods

Ramblewood is across Tadpole Road from Fairbrook Park’s ball fields, basketball court, and picnic grounds. The east side of the development is in mature woods, with lovely two-story homes of all styles; the west side is less wooded and includes ranch homes. Ramblewood II is on the other side of Whitehall Road, with similar homes and neighboring horse ranch and tack shop.

31 Saybrook In this family-friendly neighborhood, lots start at half an acre, and many offer more than one acre, while maintaining a traditional neighborhood setting with sidewalks, wooded vistas, and walking/biking trails to downtown State College. Homes start in the $500,000s. Greenbriar-Saybrook Park is here. 32 Somerset This neighborhood consists of 24 homes developed by Levi Homes on lots of at least one-third acre, similar to those in neighboring Westfield. Somerset offers a rural flavor, yet is close enough to walk to Pine Grove Mills on the bike path. 33 Stonebridge This development features

large two-story homes as well as smaller ranches and split-levels. Open spaces include a bike path, tennis courts, picnic pavilion, and swimming pool.

37 Turnberry This new neighborhood features beautiful one- and two-story single-family homes and duplexes convenient to shopping, dining, and golf courses, with a walking/bike path that connects to others throughout the region. Homes start at $281,900. 38 The Valley

In this forested haven off Circleville Road in both Ferguson and Patton townships, mature trees surround residences built in recent decades. The homes, many with natural wood siding, seem to blend into their woodsy landscapes.

39 Westfield

This serene neighborhood of larger homes backs up to farmland, yet it’s close to the village of Pine Grove Mills and Ferguson Elementary School. A bike path borders this development, and Cecil Irvin Park is being developed here.

40 Westway Gardens Phases I and II of

this development are across from one another off Westerly Parkway. Various shades of brown brick give warmth to these ranch homes with two-car garages and relaxing decks. Cul-desacs offer safety and privacy. n

Harris Township 8 The Gates A new condominium community nestled at the base of Tussey Mountain near historic Boalsburg, this developing neighborhood of 155 townhomes is built by Berks Homes and offers two styles of three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom townhomes starting in the upper $100,000s. The Gates is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts but offers convenient access to State College and U.S. 322. New units available. 9 Harris Acres The large homes here are

mostly color coordinated in charming brick and siding, but in every style imaginable. Large lots feature plenty of mature landscaping, including spectacular evergreens. Vehicles have limited access to the community from South Atherton Street (Business Rte. 322), and Harris Acres is near Meyer Dairy and Hills Plaza. It is in both College and Harris townships.

10 The Hill A new condominium complex, The Gates is close to both town and mountain hiking trails.

1 Aspen Heights This development can 4 Brookside only be described as grand — a steep slope of wide-open spaces dotted with impressive homes in a variety of styles. The lots are huge, with endless vistas of the rural countryside. This neighborhood features some of the largest homes in the area. The entrance is across from Mountain View Country Club.

2 Bear Meadow Village These huge

and gorgeous homes are as impressive as those at Aspen Heights. Built of brick, stone, and discreet wood siding, these distinctive homes rest on nicely landscaped lots looking down to the valley and up to Tussey Mountain ski slopes next door.

3 Boalsburg David Boal founded this village

in 1798. Though Memorial Day was observed for the first time nationally in 1868, Boalsburg claims to have started the holiday locally in 1864. The quaint village is also home to mementos inherited by Christopher Columbus’ descendants and the Boal family. Boalsburg life revolves around “the Diamond,” with its historic houses, eateries, and shops. The village is home to the Pennsylvania Military Museum, Blue Spring Park, and the Stan Yoder Memorial Preserve. Events include the Peoples’ Choice Arts Festival and the Memorial Day celebration.

80 Town&Gown’s 2017-2018 Guide to Neighborhoods

This is a well-established neighborhood just east of historic Boalsburg, with plenty of pretty little ranch homes in a variety of colors. Trees shade this neighborhood of modestly priced homes.

5 Country Place Across U.S. Rte. 322 from Brookside, this neighborhood climbs the lower slopes of Tussey Mountain. Many styles of mid-sized split-levels take advantage of the land and vistas, with some multi-unit residences farther up the hill. Country Place Park is here. 6 Elksview This 50-unit townhouse community next to the Mountain View Country Club features three-bedroom units with onecar garages and great vistas of Tussey Mountain and Mount Nittany.

7 Fairfield A lot of thought went into plan-

ning this development of 58 larger homes. The entrance off Rte. 45 is lovely, as is the rest of the landscaping. Home styles include contemporary and traditional models on lots from half an acre to one acre, many with mature trees. Connects to Harris Acres.

Perched above the Pennsylvania Military Museum is Boalsburg’s “newer historic neighborhood” — a large and wellestablished area with ranches, Cape Cods, and modest two-story homes. Saint Joseph’s Catholic Academy and Nittany View Park are here.

11 Huntridge Manor About 50 homes

are in this newer neighborhood next to Mountain View Country Club off Rte. 45 near Boalsburg. The generous lots start at an acre, and five homes front the golf course. The rolling land gives each home a vista of the surrounding mountains and valley, as well as Tussey Mountain ski slopes.

12 Kaywood I & II Developed over the past few decades, this neighborhood off Rte. 45 features a wide variety of home styles on heavily wooded lots in the older section, plus new homes with great views. Tucked at the edge of the neighborhood is Kaywood Park, with a playground and stone picnic pavilion. 13 Laurel Hills Each of approximately 35

custom homes here will be designed to take best advantage of the lot’s panoramic vista of Tussey Mountain Ski Area and the surrounding valley. On a par with neighboring Bear Meadow Village, the second phase of this community is under development. Lots are 0.684 to 1.225 acres. Building lots available.


21 Springfield Commons This growing

community within walking distance of downtown Boalsburg will consist of 37 detached homes and 48 duplexes. Amenities include a community center with full kitchen, gathering room, area for card parties, and fitness center; a tot lot; wireless Internet; walking trails; lawn care; and snow removal. Designed to complement historic Boalsburg, the neighborhood features front porches, streetlights, and village greens. Buyers can choose their own builders. Building lots available.

22 Willowbrook This development is on a slight slope with nice landscaping and open park area. The large, mostly two-story homes are on smaller lots for easy maintenance. The back decks of some homes look down on pleasant Fasick Park with views of Tussey Mountain and Mountain View Country Club Golf Course. n “The Diamond" is Boalsburg’s town square, surrounded by colonial-era business and residential buildings.

14 Laurel Meadow On the slopes of Tus- 18 Panorama Village sey Mountain near the eastern edge of Harris Township, Laurel Meadow homes are situated on mostly wooded lots of two to more than 13 acres. Access is off Rte. 322, and underground utilities and community septic are provided.

15 Liberty Hill This active condominium community includes single- and multi-family homes, all with first-floor master suites. Homeowners have access to a clubhouse with great room, café, library, game room, exercise room, sauna, whirlpool, locker rooms, and huge deck with a spectacular view of Mt. Nittany, as well as a heated outdoor pool and tennis courts, plus a lifestyle director who schedules monthly events. New units available.

16 Linden Hall This tiny old village is a

real charmer, from the sparkling private duck pond to the one-lane bridges that span Cedar Run. The road winds past homes of varied types and ages, bracketed by farms.

17 Nittany Grove This 26-home neigh-

borhood, which dates to the late 1960s, is expanding to include a total of 54 homes. Amenities will include mulched walking trails and a pavilion/gathering area. Building lots available.

This neat and friendly neighborhood consists mainly of modest ranch-style homes on smaller wooded lots. Tucked back in the development (in College Township) is Mount Nittany Elementary School, with its soccer and baseball fields. Panorama Village is in both College and Harris townships.

19 Rockey Ridge This panoramic new

development with easy access to the Rte. 322 bypass connects the well-established neighborhoods of Aspen Heights and Kaywood. A thoughtful design takes advantage of the 50-percent green-space requirement so almost every home site backs up to open space. The mix of lot sizes, all with spectacular vistas of Tussey or Nittany mountain, will allow construction of homes in a wide price range. Building lots available.

20 Shingletown

The farther you drive into Shingletown, the more heavily wooded it is, until you end up in deep forest on the slopes of Tussey Mountain, with trees shading a few tucked-away homes. Varied styles include a log cabin, chalet, farmhouses, and Cape Cods. The community is not far from the John Hess Softball Field Complex.

Formed in partnership with Penn State, this one-of-a-kind community features Collegiate Station, Honors Crossing, Ivy Ridge, and Tradition Point single-family homes; Tradition Cove single-family condominiums; Mascot Cove multi-family condos; Homecoming Ridge townhomes; and Varsity Hollow duplex townhomes. Residents have access to amenities including community center and clubhouse, pool, fitness center, Bryce Jordan Center VIP seating, and PSU discounts. Building lots/ new units available.

31 Vista Woods This extension of Valley Vista Park feels off the beaten path but has easy access to Interstate 99. The development features affordable homes on small lots and includes a little playground. The newest section is Whisper Ridge. Park Forest Village is an expansive neighborhood with a variety of living options, including single-family homes and townhomes.

22 Ridgemont

This is basically a horseshoe-shaped development on Harvard Road, off U.S. 322 near I-99. Older ranch homes mix with newer two-story homes. The neighborhood shares a park with swings and a basketball court. Prices are lower to mid-range, with the bonus of a vista of neighboring mountain ridges.

26 Timberton

Just off Rte. 550, this development features 20 single-unit residences on half-acre wooded parcels. Lawn care and snow removal are taken care of through a homeowners’ association fee, making living easy in this rural neighborhood with beautiful mountain vistas, near the new Bernel Road Park. Building lots available.

Toftrees was Pennsylvania’s first planned community, built primarily in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The community features a country club with an 18-hole golf course, plus a bed-and-breakfast, bars, restaurants, and hotel. It is convenient to the Mount Nittany Expressway and Penn State. Housing includes single-unit homes, townhomes, and apartments.

28 The Valley In this forested haven off Circleville Road, mature trees surround residences built in recent decades. The homes, many with natural wood siding, seem to blend into their woodsy landscapes. 29 Valley Vista Park Since around 1980, Valley Vista Park has offered a pleasing alternative to town-home living. These cozy, single-unit homes on small lots are charming and affordable. Instead of sidewalks in front, paths meander through the woods in back of the homes.

32 Wildernest Built in the ’80s, Wildernest homes are sited on larger lots with rolling hills. Styles and exteriors have blended nicely, including some natural stone and wood. 33 Windtryst Village There are two great reasons to live here besides the cozy 16-home size of this rural development. If you do a lot of traveling, you’re just a hop from the University Park Airport. If you work at Penn State, you can sneak in the “back way” past Toftrees on Fox Hollow Road. 34 Wooded Hills

Thirty-two single-unit homes are planned for this new development near the bend where Fox Hollow Road becomes Fox Hill Road. The neighborhood is just down the road from University Park Airport. Building lots available.

35 Woodycrest This neighborhood is between Wal-Mart and The Colonnade plaza off North Atherton Street. It holds affordably priced homes, Wood’s Edge and Fredericksburg Court townhomes, and apartments, plus Woodycrest Park. n

Many historic homes here have been restored, and the Federal-style Aaronsburg Inn attracts visitors looking to get away from it all. 2 Alirry Ridge Outside of Centre Hall off

1 Amitie This 6-acre complex on Stratford Drive is close to the YMCA, Orchard Park, Welch Pool, and State College Area High School. Built in the mid-’70s, Amitie I and Amitie II are apartment-style condominiums offering natural gas heat, private patios/decks, on-site laundry, and a variety of floor plans.

2 College Heights The first homes here were

North Atherton Street divides the area into West College Heights and East College Heights, which has more rental homes. Now a National Register Historic District, the neighborhood is also home to Radio Park Elementary School and Sunset Park, and the Penn State Arboretum borders the eastern edge. The area has a neighborhood association.

3 College Heights North This small new

development extends on a gently curving road from the tree-lined streets of College Heights, close to North Atherton Street, and includes single-unit homes and duplex homes. College Heights North is in both the borough and Ferguson Township.

4 Downtown With a variety of floor plans, prices, and amenities, high-rise properties offer an easy walk to restaurants, shopping, and the Penn State campus. Some offer 24-hour security and parking garages. A variety of floor plans, prices, and amenities are available at: Ambassador, Atherton House, Barcroft Condos, Beaver Plaza, Beaver Terrace, Hetzel Plaza, The Metropolitan, Midtown Square, Pepper Mill, Regency Square, The Towers, University Gateway, and University Towers. 5 Greentree The area spreading out from State

College Area High School features single-unit homes along shaded streets, including the smaller Shamrock Estates development. Aarus Townhomes are in the neighborhood as well. Orchard Park winds through the area to Welch Pool. Our Lady of Victory Church and school are here. The area has a neighborhood association.

6 Highlands Making up half of the

Holmes-Foster/Highlands National Register Historic District, this well-established neighborhood is south of Penn State and the downtown business district. It is populated with a mix of residences, apartments, and impressive fraternity houses. Many professional offices and small shops share the cross-streets. The area includes historic mail-order houses as well as high-rise apartments. The Highlands has a neighborhood association and is close to Fairmount School, Friedman Parklet, Memorial Field, and Fairmount Park.

7 Holmes-Foster One of the oldest in the borough and very proud of its heritage, HolmesFoster is part of the Holmes-Foster/Highlands National Register Historic District. The neighborhood is the namesake of the borough’s oldest park and is up the hill from Community Field’s ball fields and tennis courts. Homes range from small bungalows built to house a long-ago influx of Penn State students and faculty to larger, stately homes built by community leaders. The area has a neighborhood association. 8 Hunters Ridge These condominium-style homes are at the corner of Blue Course and Stratford drives. With the added enjoyment of a clubhouse and pool, this neighborhood provides a relaxing yet active way of life close to High Point Park. 9 Nittany Hills Just off Branch Road, this neighborhood of larger homes looks over Slab Cabin Run and is adjacent to Centre Hills Country Club and golf course. 10 Penfield An attractive neighborhood perched on the hills between State College South and Centre Hills Country Club, this area of nice single-unit homes is accessible to Hills Plaza and South Atherton Street. Though convenient, it seems away from it all with shaded streets and pretty vistas.


11 South Hills This pretty neighborhood lies

to the south of South Atherton Street and north of the University Drive extension. It includes the area near South Hills and Lytle avenues where pioneering developer Al Hawbaker built about 80 modest homes. The borough annexed South Hills in 1946. Nittany Village Park and South Hills Park are here. The area has a neighborhood association.

12 State College South In 1930, the borough annexed a large, V-shaped part of College Township, now forming much of the borough’s south area. Included was Manor Hills, a development of Eugene and Lucy Lederer that stretched from Garner Street to Centre Hills Country Club. Lederer Park, off University Drive, is named for the family. Another part of State College South is the Lytle Addition, annexed in 1932 and roughly bordered by Crestmont and Old Boalsburg roads, Cross Avenue, and Atherton Street. This pleasant residential area is now home to Hamilton Square shopping center and Easterly Parkway Elementary School. The area has a neighborhood association. Smithfield Park is here. 13 State College Southwest This area

is popular for apartment complexes such as Briarwood, Lion’s Gate, Imperial Towers, and The Retreat, all near Westerly Parkway Plaza, South Hills School of Business & Technology, and the State College YMCA. Also here are townhomes such as Maple Village, Roundhay Court, and Shamrock Townhomes, as well as a few single-unit homes.

14 Urban Village Most of the sturdy brick

homes north of West College Avenue have been converted into apartments and rooms for students. The area is home to the bus station, originally a Railway Express depot. The neighborhood is close to Penn State’s golf courses and west campus.

15 Vallamont Farmland for this neighborhood was purchased in 1955 from the Moses Thompson estate and the Centre Furnace lands. It was the first truly upscale development of architect-designed homes in the borough, developed by H.O. Smith & Sons. This neighborhood is close to Lederer Park, Walnut Springs Park, and Thompson Woods Preserve. A neighborhood association helps care for residents’ concerns. 16 Way Subdivision This area just north

of the University Drive extension is made up of newer single-unit homes. This subdivision shares space with Foxdale Village retirement community, State College Friends School, and Courtyard by Marriott. Tusseyview Park is nearby. n
