Meadville History

Meadville was established on the 12th of May, 1788 by David Mead and a group of settlers he led. The name of the town was kept to honor David Mead. Iroquois and Lenape tribes from the nearby areas moved to the area, but threats of attacks by their foes including the Wyandots caused them to leave for a period of time. By the 19th century, the economy of Meadville was influenced by agriculture, logging, and iron production.
