Osceola Mills, Clearfield Co., PA
[Osceola Mills was originally called Osceola.]
[Osceola Mills, once known as Osceola, was a very thriving town with the Tyrone & Clearfield Railroad directly connected to this borough. Osceola Mills was actually laid out by Centre County parties, in 1859 that were primarily interested in the vastness of pine and hemlock lumber forests. Along with the forests, there was a great source of coal beds that laid under those forests. It was established as a borough in 1864. Osceola Mills is located along Centre County in Decatur Township.
In the year 1863, the Osceola area had thirteen large saw mills, most of which were owned by The Moshannon Land and Lumber Company. The company was capable of producing over 75,000 feet of lumber per day.]
