Indiana

Blog followers outside of Pennsylvania may think that I’ve expanded my geographic boundaries.  I always thought it was an odd name for a town, but Indiana really is located in Pennsylvania.  The presence of the Indiana University of Pennsylvania has provided a stabilizing force for the town, in an area where coal mining and associated industry has declined over the years.  Architecturally, there are many well appointed buildings.  I believe the most notable and unique is the old Indiana Municipal Building, built in the Dutch Colonial Revival style.  There are many residential buildings in this part of the state that draw on the Dutch Colonial Revival style, but nonresidential buildings are difficult to find.
