Inscription.  An Indian path, the 1796 State Road and the Erie Pike crossed Clearfield Creek here. Nearby, Ardery's Sawmill and Elder's Woolen Mill were among the first in the county. In 1857, armed rafters drove floaters of logs from the creek. Rafting continued until 1895. The Clearfield Bridge Post Office (est. 1824) served the area. C. 1903 the Clearfield Southern RR established Dimeling Station, named for an area lumbering family.
