Piedmont history:

Like many 19th century communities, Piedmont's history is connect to the railroad. The railroad came to Piedmont in 1851 where engine houses and repair facilities were built. A big plus for Piedmont was the abundance of coal in the area. Since the railroad had recently switched from wood to coal, Piedmont was the perfect place. During the Civil War, southern forces burned much of the area but were stopped by General Kelly before they could burn the bridge. Piedmont was incorporated in 1866.
