Directions to the Hollidaysburg Veterans' Home

The Hollidaysburg Veterans’ Home does not have its own address. It is located directly across the street from Golden Orthotics & Prosthetics, 1792 Old Route 220 North, Duncansville, PA 16635.

At the traffic light, you will see an orange sign that says “Hollidaysburg Veterans’ Home Entrance." After turning onto the Veterans’ Home grounds, you will see a dark brown brick building to your left; you may park on either side of that building and enter the side door. Signs will direct you to which room where the orientation will be held.
