Located almost directly in the middle of Pennsylvania is the town of Bellefonte. It is about twelve miles northeast of its neighbor, State College. The city itself is named after a natural spring which though now covered, still serves as the town's water supply. Bellefonte got its start in the 1790s with just one house and a crossroad. When iron was discovered, however, and the city grew quickly. Another little bit of trivia about Bellefonte is that it is home to five of Pennsylvania's governors as well as governors from two other states. All seven of these public servants are commemorated in a monument located in Talleyrand Park.
