Barnard Residence, Bellefonte, PA

This 1858 Pennsylvania farmhouse structure at 113 East Linn Street was the birthplace of George Grey Barnard (1863-1938), famous American sculptor and son of a Bellefonte Presbyterian minister.  Among his famous works were the Barnard groups of statuary flanking the main entrance of the State Capitol Building in Harrisburg and a Statue of Lincoln, a replica of which is located in Cincinnati, Ohio. He also collected medieval sculpture that formed the nucleus of the collection in The Cloisters museum in Manhattan. The George Grey Barnard Sculpture Garden in Talleyrand Park contains a bust of Lincoln, cast from the original plaster head sculpted in 1917 by George Grey Barnard. 
rame siding on this house was scored to suggest masonry blocks with quoined corners. The house is now a bed and breakfast.
