Hollidaysburg Historic District is a national historic district located at Hollidaysburg, Blair County, Pennsylvania. The district includes 426 contributing buildings in the central business district and surrounding residential areas of Hollidaysburg. The buildings are primarily frame and brick, with some dating as early as the 1830s. Notable non-residential buildings include the African Methodist Episcopal Church (1885), the King-McClanahan House (1864 - now Allegheny Street B&B), Presbyterian Church (1869-1870), Blair County Jail (1868), Condron Opera House (c. 1870), Citizen's National Bank Building (1902), U.S. Post Office (1917), and Hollidaysburg Trust Company Building (1924). Located in the district and separately listed are the Blair County Courthouse and Highland Hall.[2]

Before permission is granted for exterior modifications to structures within the district, they must first be reviewed by the Historic Architecture Review Board (HARB). Seven members serve on the HARB, each of whom are appointed by the Hollidaysburg Borough Council to serve a three-year term. Board members must also be a member of the Historic Preservation Commission, but may be non-residents of the Borough.[3]
