BHCA Home | Virtual Tour Home | Center Town Map | Next Stop
This home at 251 N Allegheny Street, across
the street from the Hastings Mansion and immediately south of the Episcopal
Church (red door), was built for Dr. Robert L. Dartt (1853-1895), a prominent
Bellefonte physician. A plaque on the front says it was built in 1879.
Interior features include three fireplaces, butler's pantry, claw-foot tubs,
antique chandeliers, built-in linen closets with glass doors, built-in china
closets, stained glass windows, French-styled doors, and wooden interior
The house, as it stands today, is an amalgam of styles, like many in Bellefonte. The eave brackets along the front and the tall windows suggest Italianate style, the tall roof and oher features are Gothic Revival, the tall tower Second Empire, and the wrap-around porch and overall appearance Queen Anne style.
