Tax Credit Awarded for Repair of Century Inn in Scenery Hill

HARRISBURG – A $100,000 tax credit has been awarded for the restoration of the historic Century Inn in Scenery Hill, according to Senator Camera Bartolotta (R-46).

The historic landmark, which was first opened in 1794, was severely damaged by a fire in 2015. The $100,000 tax credit was awarded through the state’s Historic Preservation Tax Credit program to support the estimated $1,779,000 construction and restoration cost.

“Century Inn has a rich and storied history and remains one of the region’s most important historical landmarks,” Bartolotta said. “I appreciate all the work that has gone into repairing and preserving this beautiful part of our region’s heritage, and I am thankful that this funding will support that worthwhile effort.”

The Historic Preservation Tax Credit program is administered by the Department of Community and Economic Development and the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission. The current round of funding included $3 million in tax credits in order to leverage an estimated $113 million in redevelopment funding.
