The Centre Furnace Mansion House, a restored and furnished ironmaster’s home listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is the headquarters of the Centre County Historical Society, located in State College, PA. This historic mansion and nearby iron furnace stack represent the 18th century beginnings of the charcoal iron industry in the central Pennsylvania area, and the 19th century beginnings of the Pennsylvania State University. It was the home of Centre Furnace ironmaster Moses Thompson, his wife Mary Irvin Thompson, and their children from 1842-1891.
