View of Orbsonia and Rock Hill, Huntingdon County, P.A., 1906 / drawn & published by Fowler & Kelly.

This aero-view map of Orbisonia and Rock Hill, Pennsylvania was drawn by Thaddeus Mortimer Fowler and published by Fowler & Kelly in 1906. Orbisonia emerged out of a former Indian fort along the banks of Blacklog Creek. The area around Orbisonia was found to be rich in blue limestone and particularly desirable brown iron ore. A duel-stack furnace and a forge were erected just across the creek. The iron furnaces were operated by the Rockhill Iron and Coal Company who instilled a community around the furnaces naming it Rock Hill. Rock Hill prospered in the 1870's when the East Broad Top Railroad, an affiliate of the iron and coal company, erected a depot there.

The map from 1906 includes labeled streets, bridges, buildings and railroad routes. It features inset illustrations of the following:

  • Public School. Orbisonia.
  • Public School. Rock Hill.
  • Presbyterian Church.
  • Dunkards Church.
  • Methodist Episcopal Church.
  • Episcopal Church.
  • United Brethren Church.
  • Reformed Church.
