Reader Road Trip: A Treasury of American History in Centre County, PA
Forefathers Book Shop
Housed in a former bank building, Forefathers Book Shop is a delightful place to spend a couple of hours. In addition to the books on the shelves, there are stacks of books to explore on tables and almost every surface. Likewise, be sure to take a peek in the basement where there are thousands of novels. Moreover, there are even boxes of books waiting to be searched for hidden gems.
The book shop specializes in American History, specifically Political History. In addition, there are thousands of biographies of American figures. The biographies of every American President are displayed in the former bank’s vault. The theme of American History wraps its way through out the store in artwork, presidential portraits, and collectibles on any wall space not taken up by book shelves. The theme is extended to the glass bottles of soda and frozen treats available on site.
The book shop is located in Rebersburg. Rebersberg is about midway between State College and Lewisburg, along Route 192. Visitors to either Penn State University Park or Bucknell can plan a lovely morning or afternoon jaunt away from the typical college town exuberance. Complete your road trip with a meal in nearby Millheim at the Elk Creek Cafe. Uncover a treasure of Centre County, Pennsylvania and visit Forefathers Book Shop.
