Interesting Tidbits About the Twelfth St. Office
The Twelfth Street location of Reliance Bank is situated adjacent to some of the largest and longest-serving businesses in downtown Altoona. Our Twelfth Street location operates weekdays, for the convenience of commercial and personal banking customers. The location is situated conveniently near City Hall, and is highly accessible by AMTRAN public transportation. It is very close to many of the important addresses downtown that are frequented most, such as the Mishler Theatre, the county public assistance office, Thompson’s Pharmacy, Texas Hot Dogs, Tom and Joe’s, the U.S. Post Office, UPMC-Altoona, and a number of housing locations and restaurants.
Located at the intersection of Twelfth Street and 12th Avenue, Reliance Bank’s Twelfth Street office is a centerpiece building, nestled at a corner of town that is home to many historic-era buildings. In addition to the historic Mishler Theatre, the nearby City Hall Commons building is the former Penn Alto hotel, once considered a very prestigious location for visiting dignitaries. The downtown office on Twelfth Street is also situated so close to many older homes featuring Victorian style architecture. These residences now generally contain numerous apartments that may be student housing utilized by students and faculty of Penn State’s Altoona campus.
The Twelfth Street office is also nearest to some of the most innovative and enterprising entities, such as Penn State’s Sheetz Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence and Catalyst Space. These are part of the revitalization effort to keep the downtown business area thriving.
