Founded as an iron-mining center. The community eventually became a ghost town because of the iron ore's impurity, an element identified as titanium

The local economy rebounded when titanium became an important ingredient in paints and other products

The National Lead Company moved the entire village to Newcomb in 1963 so that it could expand its mining operations. The mine closed in 1990
