    • Cameron County

      Created on March 29, 1860 from parts of Clinton, McKean, and Potter Counties and named
      for U.S. Senator Simon Cameron. Emporium, the county seat, was incorporated as a borough on
      October 13, 1864; its name is Latin for “market” or “trade center.”

      The Sinnemahoning Creek and its tributaries dominate the area and the first settlers
      recognized the destructiveness of flooding. Farming never developed; lumber has always shaped the
      economy. Because of abundant stands of hemlock tanning developed. There was a serious flood in
      1847, but the opening of the Philadelphia and Erie Railroad brought about the creation of the
      county. Overwhelming floods occurred in October 1861 and in the spring of 1889, punctuated by
      milder floods in 1865 and 1884. In 1884, a forest fire depleted much of the timber wealth.

      Cameron had only a little oil, gas, and coal, but furniture and wood product industries arose. In the twentieth
      century, the Sylvania Corporation, manufacturers of radio tubes and electrical products, was born in
      Emporium. High quality flagstone has been quarried, and explosives were manufactured there in the
      1930s. Emporium was an Underground Railroad station and for a time the home of the eccentric
      Claflin sisters, spiritualists and friends of Horace Greeley. The Civil War Bucktails Regiment of
      sharpshooters was raised there, and there are many legends about rattlesnakes and hunters’ exploits.
      Movie cowboy actor Tom Mix was born on Mix Run. Over half the land is in state parks and game
      lands; only 1 percent is farmed. Lumber is still a major product, and there is thriving activity in tool
      and die works and pressed metals. [3]
