History: The Town of Firestone, named after Ohio investor Jacob H. Firestone, was established in 1908 to support local coal miners and their families. On May 27, 1907, the Denslow Coal and Land Company dedicated a perpetual right of way to the public, forming the boundaries of the Town. Denslow Coal and Land had purchased 160 acres of land from the widow of Thomas McKissick of McKissick Mine.
Later that same year, Ohio investors bought Denslow out and started the Firestone Coal Company, establishing the Firestone coal mine.
