Pennsylvania Match Company
The Pennsylvania Match Factory was one of the leading producers of wooden matches during the first half of the 20th century.  It was founded in 1899 by Bellefonte entrepreneurs, including Col. W Fred Reynolds.  The factory buildings opened in 1900, utilizing the vast resources of the surrounding region.  By World War II, the company had merged into the Universal Match Corporation, and the workforce had grown to 400.  The factory closed in 1947 due to competition from book matches and cigarette lighters.

Neff Round Barn

Round Barns gained popularity in the late ninetieth century due to the design's stability, efficiency of materials and capacity for storage. The round barn's support structure allows the floor to remain more open than in traditional barns. The open floor provides for both additional storage space and greater efficiency of movement. At the James Beck Round Barn (pictured below) 20 head of livestock could be housed while providing room for a vehicle to drive around the floor. Some versions of the round barn contained a center silo that would often rise up through the roof. The silo not only served its agricultural purpose in the round barn, it also strengthened the structure.
