One of the early iron furnaces in the county—known as the Changewater Forge—was established here in the mid-1700s by Mark Thomson.
During the 1800s, a number of industries were attempted in Changewater, including a tannery, woolen factory, flouring mill, picture frame factory, snuff factory, and distillery.
In 1874, the village consisted of a looking glass and picture framing factory, a store and post office, a grist mill, and eight residences.
By 1918, Changewater had a population of 200, and the A. T. Skerry woolen mill was its only industry.
