HOLLIDAYSBURG — The Blair County Genealogical Society will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday at Roller Hojeth Memorial Library, 431 Scotch Valley Road.
“What is it? Found Objects from the Renovation of the former Dunmire Printing Building” will be presented by Judy Coutts. During the renovation of the former Dunmire Printing Building at Ninth Avenue and 12th Street in Altoona, there were a number of artifacts that left the development team scratching its collective head as to what they are and what use they served.
Coutts, an architect and real estate developer, will show some of the objects found during the renovation and ask attendants to help her figure out their use so she can learn more about the building and its history.
Coutts has 40 years of experience on a wide variety of projects. She assists clients in central Pennsylvania with commercial, institutional and historical preservation projects.
