THE NEW YORK Central Railroad set up its first Indiana County coal town at Rossiter in 1900. This 1930 photo shows the tipple there, operated by the Clearfield Bituminous Coal Corp. Rossiter was named for William Rossiter, treasurer and a major stockholder in the company. It had a population of about 3,620 people in the 1929-30 era. The mines closed in 1942, according to county historian John Busovicki, of Clymer, who submitted this photo.
