Potter Twp, Centre County, PA

Beginnings [1]

Collyer [Colyer] is a small hamlet and post-office about a mile from Tusseyville, in a part of the valley known as the "Loop." There is a store where general merchandise is sold, and a saw mill operated by Mr. Collyer, after which the post-office is named. Southwest of Collyer is the "Loop" proper, formed by a curve in the mountains, and extending about three miles toward Bear Meadows, a locality famed as being one of the places where the "Pitcher" plant grows, which is said to be a specie of carnivorous vegetable. The gaps and ridges in the Seven mountains in this vicinity form many picturesque sights, and it is much frequented by the hunter and fisher.
