North Point, West Mahoning Twp., Indiana Co., PA
[North Point was originally called as Sellersville, supposedly because every house in the community had a cellar under it. The first house was erected by Phillip Enterline in 1849. There was a mill, a store, a shoemaker and a blacksmith shop as well as the Sellersville Hotel built in 1873. At some point, a post office was opened with the name North Point because it was in the northern-most part of town, the name by which name the town is known today. Other sources say that the town is named North Point because it is the northern most point of Indiana County.

It was in the 20th century that the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railroad cut through the town of North Point. North Point Park, which is across the Mahoning from the town, was a popular swimming and recreation spot. Many people, including people from Punxsutawney, came on the railroad and got off at the train station in town to go to the park. The old maple trees which were next to the station are still standing today. Sometime in the early 20th century, there was a bottling company called the "Granny Koon Bottling Company" that bottled soda pop. It was wiped out in the 1936 flood and extensive damage was done all along Mahoning Creek. After the flood, some of the houses were moved to higher ground. Some of the old foundations are still visible. The post office in North Point was once also a general store and a gas station. The post office was closed in the early 1990's.]
