For 40 years the little settlement around the State Agriculture School in Centre County had been "the town with no name." ­Around 1900, a controversy began over choosing a name for the town. ­Instead of choosing a name honoring prominent citizens, the majority chose to continue calling the town after the college as had been done in the past. ­ In 1953, this small­ school that was ­founded in 1955 as the Farmer's High School of Pennsylvania, was renamed ­The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State).­ At that time,­­there was a referendum to change the name of the town too, but it did not pass, so the town remained 'State College',

The vibrant downtown is filled with local and national business, professors and students and is the heart of the town-and-gown community. ­Offering many different neighborhoods to choose from, you'll be sure to find one that you would like to call home. ­Welcome to Happy Valley!
