1832-1900No man has contributed more to the preservation of Huntingdon County history than J. Simpson Africa, who resided here while compiling his monumental History of Huntingdon & Blair Counties in 1888. Lot#16, on which this building stands, was owned by the Africa family from 1796 to 1918. J.S.A. was born and died here. It was always his principal residence, no matter where the obligations of later life took him.
