The Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center on Sunday celebrated the 100th anniversary of the building that houses it.

Originally completed in 1914 as a post office, the building was abandoned for several years, then purchased by a group of concerned citizens who developed it into the remarkable education center that it is today.
