Originally home to the "Delaware" people, the area was acquired from the tribe just after the revolutionary war. James Duff was the first settler in 1795 who claimed 400 acres of land in the northern part of what was to become McCandless. Soon a sawmill and gristmill sprang up along the Pine Creek. Within a year of the new industry the town also developed a weekly mail service, Inns and taverns.
