The Reilly Post Office served the area until 1883 when the borough was incorporated and the name changed. Growth came with the arrival of the Bell's Gap Railroad in 1883 which opened the area to coal mining. The once bustling town had theatres, sawmills, hotels, and opera house, a newspaper, company stores and a tipple downtown. On August 15, 1928 an explosion in Blain City killed 13 miners.
