Visitors to the Boalsburg Diamond come to visit the shops and restaurants and to soak
up that small-town feeling. People who live here and own businesses strive to maintain
the town's unique personality.

Historic Boalsburg welcomes group tours to the village shops and museums. To arrange
a day tour for your organization contact the Centre County Visitors Bureau at

Springfield House

Driving into Boalsburg is literally stepping back in time, to the
days in which most Americans lived in small villages and towns.
Here you walk to the post office to pick up your mail, walk to
the cafe for a bite of lunch, go ice skating in the nearby park,
sit on the front porch and snooze.

Each year Boalsburg puts on a traditional Memorial Day
celebration complete with a parade, a community walk to
the cemetery, speeches, arts and crafts sale, military
reenactments and much more. The three day week-end
attracts nearly 25,000 visitors.

The front façade of the Pennsylvania Military Museum is
decorated with representations of military service ribbons
that have been awarded to PA Commonwealth veterans
throughout the last century.  The first known award was
the Badge of Military Merit established by George
Washington. It fell into disuse after the Revolutionary War and was revived by General
Douglas MacArthur as the Purple Heart. There have been many service ribbons
designed and authorized since the turn of the century.
