A local business appreciating their location’s history!

Take a look at our shop's storefront from the late 1800's! The beautiful arched window that we uncovered and restored is intact. It seems it was covered in the mid 1900's from what we can tell. #loveourtown #thebrewcoffeeandtap #brewyourfuture #lovewhatwedo #smalltownvibes #tyrone #espressoyourself

Hello! I have these two prints that my husband’s grandmother received for selling Cloverene Salve (we. Live in Georgia). They’ve been on my wall for 15 years, and I think that it was probably the late 1920s-early 1930s when she sold the salve. I didn’t see them on the historic site so thought I’d share here. 😉
Tyrone had a wonderful Italian restaurant years ago...trying to remember the name.
Where did the Tyrone Alma Mater melody come from? Turns out it is from a very popular 1916 love song "Calling Me Home to You" sung by John McCormick. Here is a link to a Youtube recording of the song:
Not open today! So far...and it's 1:30. A notice on website or Facebook would have been appreciate by those of us from out of the area.
Are you opening today? Visitingfrom Virginia.
I know there was a one room schoolhouse on the corner of Madison Avenue and 18th Street, that was vacated when the Adams School was built. The building is now a private residence. Does anyone know what the name of that school was?

HOLLIDAYSBURG - The Blair County Genealogical Society will meet at 7:00 pm on Thursday June 21, 2018, at the Roller Hojeth Memorial Library, 431 Scotch Valley Road. David Hsiung will present "The Naval Battle on the Juniata River during the Spanish-American War". This battle occurred on the Juniata river near Huntingdon and after the smoke cleared, it was discovered that two Spanish torpedo boats had escaped and were on their way to capture Tyrone and destroy the glass works! David Hsiung earned a B.A. from Yale University (1983) and his Ph.D. in History from the University of Michigan (1991). He has taught at Juniata College ever since, and now is the Charles and Shirley Knox Professor of History. Dave teaches the introductory "U.S. History to 1877" survey and the first-year writing course "College Writing Seminar," as well as advanced courses that examine early North America, the American Revolution, North American environmental history, global environmental history, terrorism in the American context, and 20th century American Wars. He also teaches with biologist Dr. Jay Hosler an interdisciplinary colloquium called "Comics and Culture." Dave received Juniata College's 1995 Junior Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching and the 2007 Beachley Award for Distinguished Teaching. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education named him the 2000 Pennsylvania Professor of the Year. Dave has also received recognition for his research and writing. The Appalachian Studies Association and the University Press of Kentucky jointly conferred the 1996 Appalachian Studies Award on his book, "Two Worlds in the Tennessee Mountains: Exploring the Origins of Appalachian Stereotypes" (1997). His article in the New England Quarterly, "Food, Fuel, and the New England Environment in the War for Independence, 1775-1776" (December 2007), won the Forest History Society's 2008 Theodore C. Blegen Award. He has also edited and annotated "A Mountaineer in Motion: The Memoir of Doctor Abraham Jobe, 1817-1906," which the University of Tennessee Press published in 2009. Most recently, his essay "Environmental History and the War of Independence: Saltpeter and the Continental Army's Shortage of Gunpowder" appeared in "The American Revolution Reborn," edited by Patrick Spero and Michael Zuckerman, and published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 2016. Meetings are free and open to the public. Hope to see you there!
