In the late 18th century, large groups of Irish families began to migrate to the area of modern-day Winfield Township, with one of the first being a man named Jeremiah Smith. Smith brought with him his four sons and two daughters. Other people to settle in the region were the veterans of the Revolutionary War. Other notable families that contributed to establishing Winfield included the Fairs, Jones, Cyphers, Johnstons, Kennedys, Hazletts, and Cruikshanks. Some ancestors of these families still live in these parts. Some of the first businesses were built by Smith and his sons, such as a sawmill that was located along Rough Run. In 1809, they built a grist mill. In 1817, the next important industry to be constructed was a flour mill. Over the years, the area surrounding the township became a magnet for various industries. At one point, a man named F.W. McKee owned and operated the largest limestone mine in the United States, as well as the largest one in the world. McKee quickly became the biggest employer in South Butler County. He eventually established other businesses as well, such as coal mining and a general company store.
