There was a house built on Sherwood Street in the 1860’s No. 19 and called the Dorsett house for many years.

The Soldiers Orphan School purchased a farm of 150 acres a short distance from town.  West of Brooklyn Street, (called smoky row for a time because of the iron works), the farm was used to instruct and give employment to the boys (two hours daily).   This became the Dorsett farm and until recently the woodlands on the property were known as Dorsett’s woods.

The Tioga Valley Grange was organized in 1890 and the Dorsett Family played a major role in its early history and in the state.

When the Warren L. Miller Elementary School was built the Dorsett home at 134 S. Main Street was purchased and removed to make the south main street entrance to the school.  This is known as Dorsett drive in honor of the family.

S. C. Dorsett served on the Boro Council 1911 – 1915.

Lewis Dorsett was a member of the High School Class of 1918.  He taught school in Charleston in 1938.
