History

Atsion was the site of an iron forge making bog iron in American Revolutionary times, and produced materiel for American forces. After the war, the area produced iron stoves, and a grist mill, saw mills and a paper mill were added. Still later, cotton and peanuts were grown. The state bought Atsion for Wharton State Forest in 1954.
