It is located in the southern portion of Schuylkill County about four miles south of the county seat of Pottsville. One of the earliest settlements within the borders of the county, it is generally accepted that the first settler was John Fincher, a Quaker from Chester County.
A warrant for acres of land was granted to him on March 5, The land facing on the Schuylkill River,taking in the curve of the river, is today the west ward and part of the south ward of town.
It is this year that the borough celebrates as the official founding.
Fincher built a house and barn at a point west of the current location of the center of the rail yard opposite Broadway now Fritz Reed Avenue. His home was located on an old road that crossed the river and thus became known as Fincher's Ford.
These buildings were burned by marauding Indians on November 3, The Fincher family escaped and rebuilt at or near the original location. In early September probably the 10th ofeight Indians approached the home. Fincher, his wife and three children greeted them in the hopes of establishing friendship and thus preserving their lives.
The Indians ignored their entreaties and murdered Fincher and his wife along with their two sons. A daughter, Rachel, was taken into captivity, eventually reaching the Ohio Territory.
She was returned to Colonel Bouquet after he defeated the Indians at Kittanning. Tradition states that the Finchers were buried near their home, which stood until torn down to accommodate the right of way for the Reading Railroad.

He eventually conducted three or four sawmills, two grist mills, a distillery, general store and a blacksmith shop. InDreibelbis dammed the west branch of the Schuylkill River for the purpose of power generation.
In he moved into a newly constructed home on Dock Street, living there only a short time until his death. At his death he owned an estate of acres encompassing all of present day Schuylkill Haven and Cressona extending east to Rest Haven and west to Beckville.
