Finesville began as Chelsea Forge, ca 1751, a charcoal - iron forge on the Musconetcong River.

Philip and John Fine, brothers of German descent purchased the forge in the late 1700's, built a dam, and soon after built an oil mill, gristmill and sawmill. The gristmill burned but was rebuilt as a paper mill and later became the Tayloe-Styles knife factory.
