Before the 1870s, when the northern coal fields had still not been developed, inhabitants of this area were mostly farmers and merchants. Erie was founded by Reverend Richard Van Valkenburg who was a civic leader. A plat was filed in 1871 after the Briggs Mine had been established. Erie was incorporated as a town in 1874, and became a city in 1885.
