|Visit Mifflin, Pennsylvania
Mifflin was founded as the town of Patterson. At one time, Mifflin, as well as the small community of Denholm lying directly north of the town, was an important stop along the Pennsylvania Railroad. Those tracks still travel through the town, although they are now owned by the Norfolk Southern Railway. Local legend holds that the railroad once considered placing its machine shop functions in Mifflin, which would undoubtedly have led to the establishment of Mifflin as an important Pennsylvania industrial center. However, the railroad placed those functions in the city of Altoona.
The Pennsylvania Railroad depot still stands in Mifflin, although it has long been abandoned. Mifflin is named after Thomas Mifflin, the 1st Governor of Pennsylvania.
