- A centennial edition of the Pantagraph newspaper in Bloomington on August 26, 1930 described how Money Creek and Towanda Townships prospered through improvements beginning in 1826. Early settlement, industry, farming and the railroad played a large part in the formation of the small towns of Towanda and Merna. The tile factory of Oliver Tilbury provided local homeowners a much needed product to claim land for farming and homes.
