About Pennsylvania State University-Penn State Hazleton
The Pennsylvania State College's Hazleton Undergraduate Center was established in 1934 in various locations in Hazleton. A permanent home came in December 1948 when the college purchased 26 hilltop acres in Sugarloaf Township which, for nearly 25 years, had served as the residential estate of local coal baron Eckley B. Markle. Known as “Highacres,” the site consisted of four buildings that gave the college the space it so desperately needed.

Markle’s fieldstone mansion quickly became the administration building and, at various times during its life, has housed offices, classrooms, library, health services, a kitchen and a dining room.

Today, the administration building is the most recognized Penn State Hazleton structure, serving as one of the symbols of the campus. Recently, the island in the semi-circular driveway became the home to another Penn State icon - the Nittany Lion statue, a three-fourth’s scale replica of the original at University Park.

Through gifts and purchases, Penn State Hazleton now consists of 104 acres of land, with the historic structures standing side-by-side with new and modern academic buildings, a manicured garden, a scenic overlook/picnic area, and a number of nature trails. All of these features give Penn State Hazleton its very special character.
