Bellefonte: Before and After

It is impossible to spend any time in Bellefonte without falling in love with the place.  That part of Centre County is filled with small town America charm, complete with some great old buildings.

I woke up to some very sad news Sunday morning, and below is a photo from the Centre Daily Times.
A few buildings on High Street went up in flames.  A lot of history burned Sunday morning, and it looks, at this point, that some of the buildings cannot be saved.  Pity.

Below is the way that row of buildings looked back in June, during the Sandusky trial.
Satellite trucks and news vehicles dominate the photo I took on June 5th, but you get the idea.  Bellefonte is a pretty little town.

As of this writing, it appears everyone got out of the burning buildings safely.

Bellefonte, good luck in your recovery.
