History

 

 

 


The Eriez, Iroquois, and Cornplanter Indians were the first known residents of the area that is now known as Edinboro. The Indians called the region "Conneauttee," meaning "land of the living snowflake." A man by the name of William Culbertson moved to the area in 1801, building a gristmill near Conneauttee Lake and began the beginnings of the town.[1]

From 1801 to 1825, the roots of the town were formed when congregations of Presbyterian and Methodist churches begun moving to the area and building houses and churches, some that are still around today. The original resident, Mr Culbertson, built the first school around 1825. The first post office was built and formed around 1837 when it was included in the Erie and Crawford Counties postal routes. The farms helped the area grow during this time, and the area was incorporated in 1840 with a population of 232 at about 500 acres. A turnpike between Erie and Meadville was constructed in the 1840s, made of wooden planks, and completed in 1852. In 1857, an academy was started, which was renamed the State Normal School in 1861, which would eventually become Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.

A trolley station was built by the railway company, including an electric railway in the 1900s which drew more traffic to the area. Three fires dated in 1902, 1905, and 1909, destroyed most of the wood-framed,commercial buildings but were rebuilt with brick structures that are still standing today. Many more homes, condos and apartments were constructed from 1910 through the 1950s, as Edinboro promoted itself, mainly to the surrounding populations in Pittsburgh and Erie, as a resort area by the lake which boosted tourism through this time period. Meanwhile the college gained enrollment and drew more residents to the town.

The 1960s was a large growth period for the town, as around 400 building permits were issued for both housing and business. The present day post office was built in 1960, and evolved to first class status by 1966. The demand for water consumption had tripled throughout this period, and prompted a new sewage plant to be constructed in 1970.

The borough's Home Rule Charter was adopted in 1974, with a new Municipal Building being constructed in 1975. In 1980, the census placed Edinboro first in population among all of Erie County, with a population increase of 30% from 1970 to 1980 to a total of 6,324. The businesses in the borough continued to grow, and in 1983, Edinboro State College received accreditation by the state and was renamed Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. Between the 1980s to 2000's, Edinboro University has grown to be northwestern Pennsylvania's largest university and is a key factor in drawing people to the area. Today, Edinboro is known as a college town in the winter and lake resort during the summer.

The Academy Hall was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
