Share our heritage | South Philipsburg School

Each Monday, the Centre Daily Times will publish an installment in our “Share our Heritage” series, featuring photos from Centre County’s past. Today’s photo is from George Northamer, of Bellefonte.

Northamer submitted this photo of some of the students at South Philipsburg School around 1940. The school had two rooms and housed grades one through eight.
