Penn's Cave House in Centre Hall Pennsylvania

The Penns Cave House, formerly known as the Penn's Cave Hotel sits right on the Penn's Cave and Wildlife Park property in Centre Hall Pennsylvania.

The original hotel was constructed by Daniel F. Luse of Centre Hall for Jesse and Samuel Long. The structure is classified on the National Register of Historic Places as "A Fine Example of Late Nineteenth Century Rural Pennsylvania Architecture."

The overnight guests were accommodated until 1919 and meals were served until 1929. The exterior has had minor alterations and the interior, although altered on the first and second floors, has the distinction of having the entire third floor unaltered.

Today, the Penn's Cave House is a private residence and is not open to the public. You can walk around the grounds and see the exterior when you visit Penn's Cave and Wildlife Park. The most famous guest to ever stay at the Penn's Cave Hotel was Alexander Graham Bell.

The Penn's Cave & Wildlife Park is located at 222 Penns Cave Road in Centre Hall, Pennsylvania. You can visit their web site for hours of operation, driving directions and to learn more. You can click on each photo in this post which will enlarge them in a new window so you can see the details.
