Timblin, Ringgold Twp., Jefferson Co., PA
[Located on the Pittsburg & Shawmut Railroad.]
[The town of Timblin was first called Walnut Grove.]
[John Y. Timblin was the first settler in what is now Timblin. The settlement was first known as Walnut Grove. About 1865, a peddler named Peter Wardian moved to the area and opened a distillery to make whiskey. In 1869, a post office was established and the town was named New Petersburg in honor of Peter Wardian. This post office was discontinued in 1883. John Timblin's son later opened a store and tried to re-establish the post office. By that time, the name New Petersburg was already given to another post office somewhere else in Pennsylvania. Therefore, the post office was established as Timblin in honor of the first settler.
Timblin remained small until 1910 when the Shawmut Railroad was built through town. 7 coal companies opened mines in the area about the same time. Timblin grew as a result. Snyder's feed mill opened in 1912 and the Timblin Bank was opened in 1918. A hotel was built which included a pool room. Timblin Creamery produced butter and doverspikes opened a lumber business which is still in operation as the Brocious Lumber Company. There was a bowling alley and a theater and 6 general stores. In 1924 Timblin had a newspaper called the Timblin Plain Dealer. It was last published in 1929. The mines started running out. The bank closed in 1934 and the population dwindled. Most of the businesses are gone now. ]
