Nilwood history:

The Village of Nilwood received its name from the railroad that ran through town. When the train would make stops in town to get wood for the furnace, Nilwood never had any wood for the trains, therefore it received the name of Nilwood.

The Carbon Coal Mine, operated and owned by John Bennyworth, opened in 1873. The mine was briefly closed in 1908 and then permanently closed in 1920.
