Heritage education, historic preservation and community service.

Description

The centuries-old Columbus Chapel was imported from Spain by Boal descendants of Columbus in 1909 and contains an Admiral's Desk that belonged to Christopher Columbus himself as well as fine European art dating back to the fifteenth century and two pieces of the True Cross of Jesus.
The 1789 Boal Mansion contains the original art, furnishings, weapons and tools of nine generations of this important Pennsylvania family from pioneer days to the present, including a portrait of Judge George Boal, one of the founders of the nearby Penn State University.
