Tylersville, Pennsylvania

Tylersville is an unincorporated community in Clinton County. Pennsylvania.

The Tylersville Water Company was incorporated in 1859 by John Beerly, John Kleckner, Isaac K. Frantz, Thomas Grieb, Christian Grieb, John M. Byerly, Jacob Spangler, George Shaffer, Tobias Frantz, Henry Rooney, J. C. Byerly, and Emanuel Grimes "to convey water from any point which they may deem expedient, where pure water may be obtained in a sufficient quantity for the use of the inhabitants of Tylersville, in the county of Clinton."

The Tylersville Water Supply Company was incorporated on October 23, 1902 to supply water to the village of Tylersville, Logan Township, Clinton County.  This company built a gravity system distribution water from elevated springs.  A 1965 article suggests that the company may have bought an earlier system built by William Bletz, a local miller.

The Tylersville Mutual Water Association was formed in 1958 to buy the Tylersville Water Supply Company.

Water service is provided the Tylersville Mutual Water Association.
