Holmes-Foster is one of the most historic neighborhoods in State College, bordering Fairmount Avenue. Named after Holmes-Foster Park, the oldest park in the State College Borough. This neighborhood sits tucked away from the craziness of Downtown State College, while still being within close proximity to local schools, businesses and stores! The neighborhood association also organizes several events each year, including an annual block party and a “Welcome Walk.” Residents invite neighbors and Penn State student residents to these events as a way to get to know each other and promote positive relations among neighbors. Whether purchasing a stately home or a cozy bungalow, now is the time to join the Holmes-Foster community.
