History

Southview was built as a coal town for the Montour No. 1 coal mine, which opened in 1914. The village was considered to be a first-class miners' town and included housing for miners and their families, as well as a company store. The exact date of the mine closing is unknown, but it was probably closed between 1932 and 1939, according aerial photos.
