Curwensville is located southwest of Clearfield Borough and is named for the land that John Curwen founded and occupied in 1799. John Curwen is originally from Montgomery County and was actually never a true citizen of Clearfield County. Curwensville became the second borough of Clearfield County in 1851. This quaint town was one of the many lumbering cities that flourished financially, mainly due to the access to the West Branch of the Susquehanna River.
