BHCA Home | Virtual Tour Home | Center Town Map | Bush House

BHCA acquired a series of letters apparently written from The Penn Belle Hotel in the early 1930s by a contractor, J. Waggoner, concerning repairs he made to various buildings in Bellefonte.  The collection is now at the Pennsylvania Room of the Centre County Historical Library.  One of the letters is shown below.

The Penn Belle was the name in the 1930s of the Hotel generally known as the Bush House.
