Old House Fair

Friday & Saturday, April 28 & 29 
@ The Match Factory in Bellefonte


The 2017 Old House Fair, in its second year, offers an exciting two day menu of workshops and bus facilitated tours of the Bellefonte Historic District that will kick off with banquet and internationally known authority on historic preservation, Ed McMahon. McMahon, along with over a dozen state and local experts will present programs about historic preservation and why it is good for our communities.  Maintenance challenges of old houses, architectural styles, historic landscaping, and historic masonry among other topics of interest will also be available to old house enthusiasts.


Saturday’s program is for everyone at $10 for the day.


What attendees found most useful in 2016: 

“Inspiring for future historic preservation efforts.”

“The attention it focused on the value of old buildings.”
