Curtisville was founded by L.B. Colvin just prior to 1859. Colvin built a sawmill on the railroad that traveled through Madison Township and sold as much lumber as possible so he could secure a train station. Around the same time the first retail operations were opened in Curtisville, in a building on the east side of town that was built by A.B. Newman. Lumber remained the primarily economy for the town. Other services in Curtisville included blacksmithing.
In 1859, a post office was installed in Curtisville. Jacob Oldacre served as postmaster. The post office ran until it was discontinued in 1951. A Missionary Baptists congregation was founded in Curtisville in 1860. A church was built in 1861. The land was surveyed and divided into a plat in 1873. As of 1914, 200 people lived in town and the primary economic driver was the Curtisville Tile and Brick Company.
