History & History Related Items

Dublin history:
The settlement of this area began in 1802 when Peter and Benjamin Sells, of Huntington, Pennsylvania, came to purchase 400 acres of land for their brother, John. Later, in 1808, John and his family came to live. John Sells and John Shields, an Irishman, began surveying lots in 1810. It is said that Mr. Sells let Mr. Shields name their town. He said this, after making his decision:
"If I have the honor conferred upon me to name your village, with the brightness of the morn, and the beaming of the sun on the hills and dales surrounding this beautiful valley, it would give me great pleasure to name your new town after my birthplace, Dublin, Ireland."
In 1881, Dublin was incorporated as a village. In 1970, it was still a village with only 681 residents. Great growth occurred after this time due to many factors. By 1987, the city was incorporated. Dublin's charming past may be seen when you stroll through Old Dublin. Many of these buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and have been restored.
