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.
