1820s Rebersburg, Centre County, Pennsylvania:1859, p. 355. "The first building in Rebersburg was the old log church erected in 1804 or 1805, but the first dwellinghouse was built later, either in 1807 or 1808, by Adam Bollander, and occupied the site of John A. Miller’s present house. It was soon after used as a tavern, and the election poll was fixed there which had been up to this time at Mr. John N. Gast’s. The house was burned down and rebuilt during its early history. Bollander was the first landlord; Godfrey Harloff succeeded him about the year 1812. This Harloff was something of a character; he served several terms in the penitentiary and had a disposition to appropriate things to which he had no legal title. Among the other landlords who had charge of this house are remembered: Christian Clevenstine, Henry Walbon, Daniel Couser, Henry Smull, Isaac Zeigler, Jacob Bierly, John Clapp, and a Mr. Strouse."
