Bellefonte Gives Garman to Developer

A conservation group trying to save a local landmark lost their battle.
BELLEFONTE, CENTRE COUNTY - A conservation group trying to save a local landmark has lost their battle.

The Bellefonte Industrial Development Authority voted Wednesday night to stand by their plan to give the Garman Theatre to a State College developer.

The fire-ravaged theater has been at the center of debate for several months, as the Bellefonte Historical and Cultural Association fought to restore the theater and create a regional art center.

The developer also owns the Hotel Do De next door to the Garman, as well as the Cadillac building, and plans to turn all three buildings into workforce housing.
