I have lived in Altoona for 28 years. There weren't many businesses then, but it has grown tremendously and into a wonderful small town. I never considered it a place that was "once written off as an area destined for truck stops and cheap motels." I have not heard that before. Whoever thought that up is badly mistaken.
