Local Area Info: Blossburg, Pennsylvania

In 1792 a party of immigrants who were building the Williamson Road from Williamsport, in Lycoming County, to Painted Post in New York under the leadership of Robert and Benjamin Patterson discovered coal within the present town limits of Blossburg. When the group reached the Tioga River, they established a supply camp upon its banks.

In 1801, Aaron Bloss moved to Tioga County and in 1802, moved to the area known as "Peters Camp". He is considered the first settler of Blossburg. Sometime between 1818 and 1820, Aaron Bloss made the first attempt to found a town by changing the name of Peter's Camp to Blossburg. Blossburg was finally recognized and incorporated a borough in August 1871.

The real mining history of Blossburg Coal began shortly after 1810 when David Clemens made the first effort to mine and market coal. Clemens opened a mine on Bear Run between 1812 and 1815, serving only the Painted Post area. Around the same time a lower vein was opened on Bear Run by Aaron Bloss. This vein is known as the Bloss Vein but was used only to satisfy local demands.
