History/Science, For the Family, Antiques
The Mansion, which served as the ironmaster’s residence for Centre Furnace, has been restored and furnished to reflect the period of residency (1842-1891) of ironmaster Moses Thompson and his family. In 1855, Moses Thompson and business partner James Irvin donated 200 acres of land to initiate the Farmers’ High School – which later became The Pennsylvania State University. This historic house museum also serves as headquarters, library, and archives for the Centre County Historical Society and its year-round programming and events. Permanent and rotating exhibits are featured in the Mansion, and the adjacent exhibit building, throughout the year. There are no tours on Easter Sunday or Fourth of July. Please plan accordingly or call ahead.
