History

Harrisburg was founded in 1836 by Joseph Chenowith, and surveyed and platted by Frederick Cole. Prior to the laying out of the village, the area was known as Darby Cross Roads. [4] The present name is after Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. [5]

Prior to the establishment of the village of Harrisburg, the Big Darby Post Office had been established on March 13, 1834, and the name was changed to Harrisburgh Post Office on February 18, 1835. The post office was, for an unknown reason, discontinued or decommissioned on August 26, 1836, but was quickly re-established on October 21, 1836. The spelling was officially changed to "Harrisburg" on March 30, 1893. [6]

From the outset in 1836 Harrisburg was known as a lively village, and then held about thirty families. By 1858 the population had grown to one hundred and fifteen, by 1900 to around two hundred, and in 1908 was estimated at three hundred. [4]
