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 smallschool that wasfounded in 1955 as the Farmer's High School of Pennsylvania, was renamedThe Pennsylvania State University. At that time,there was a referendum to change the name of the town too, but it failed, so it remained State College, PA.State College is one of the best places to live, learn, work and relax. State College's vibrant downtown lies at 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!
