Long Description:
(visit link) says it best.

Meadville was founded on May 12, 1788 by a party of settlers lead by David Mead.

David Mead served as a general in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. At that time, the Continental Congress had little money, and instead, it granted lands in lieu of cash payments to members of the Continental Army who served in the war. David had read about George Washington's travels through this area in 1757, & was looking for a place to settle following the War. David, John, and Joseph Mead settled along French Creek in 1788. The settlement was known as Cussewago, then Mead's Mill, and finally Meadville.

David Mead was appointed associate judge of Crawford County, where he served until his death in 1816.
Year it was dedicated: 1788
