We are pleased to ring in the holiday season once again with a local tradition at the Centre Furnace Mansion! Regional fine artists, antique dealers, crafters and dedicated Historical Society volunteers have been hard at work planning and preparing for this year’s Stocking Stuffer. Proceeds from this annual fundraiser benefit the Centre County Historical Society to support its preservation and public programming efforts.
By attending and doing some of your holiday shopping at the Stocking Stuffer sale, you support these efforts this holiday season and, in turn, support the work of area artists and businesses. Whether a new or returning shopper, our vendors provide a variety of new and exciting items each year!
Just in time for the Stocking Stuffer, Centre Furnace Mansion’s dining room and grand front hall will be festively decorated for the holiday season through the generosity of some of Centre County’s finest florists: Avant Garden, Daniel Vaughn Design. Boughs, berries, bulbs and bows will bedeck the Mansion’s exterior and Hearth Room contributed by our talented Centre Furnace Mansion Gardeners.
This time of year, we always remember Honey Jaffe and her small committee who had an idea in 2002 to start a holiday fundraising tradition at the Centre Furnace Mansion. The Stocking Stuffer fundraiser has grown to provide over 15% of the CCHS operating budget.

While we are currently planning to hold the Stocking Stuffer, adjustments are in place to make the sale as safe as possible for our volunteers, guests and vendors.
Masks will be required to enter. This year we will be monitoring occupancy and providing increased space for our guests to move through the Mansion to provide more room for physical distancing. Touch surfaces will be disinfected regularly. We will continue to monitor the level of community transmission of Covid-19 in Centre County and will adjust our Covid-19 protocols accordingly. As the sale date gets closer, we will update this message as necessary.
The Centre Furnace Mansion is located at 1001 E. College Avenue., State College, PA.
Parking is available in the Mansion’s parking lot off of Porter Road and on the grass parking area in front of the Mansion off of College Ave. Please do not park in the lot designated for Frye’s/Moyer’s Sew & Vac.
