View of Curwensville, Clearfield County, P.A., 1895 / drawn & published by T. M. Fowler & James B. Moyer.

This panoramic print of Curwensville, Pennsylvania was drawn by Thaddeus Mortimer Fowler and published by T. M. Fowler & James B. Moyer in 1895. Curwensville was settled in the late 1700's along the banks of the West Branch Susquehanna River. The harvesting of timber and tanning were important early interests in the area. Named for land patent owner John Curwen, Sr., Curwensville grew slowly at first until 1874 when the Pennsylvania Railroad arrived. In 1893 the Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburgh Railway began carrying bituminous coal from Pennsylvania���s valuable coal fields westward through Curwensville, enabling manufacturing possibilities in the region. Industries that emerged in the community during this era were a woolen mill, blouse factory and the Crescent Fire Brick Works. Many industries related to the mining of coal supported Curwensville in 1895.

The detailed map shows Curwensville���s clearly labeled streets, buildings, bridges and railroad lines.
