Settled in 1812 and platted in 1872, DuBois was incorporated as a borough in 1881 and as a city in 1914. While DuBois was founded as a lumber town, the mining of bituminous coal quickly became the chief industry in DuBois. The town bears the name for local lumber magnate John DuBois who came from a longstanding American family of French Huguenot descent.
As of the census of 2010, there were 7,794 people, 3,720 households, and 2,453 persons per square mile in the City of DuBois. The DuBois tri-county area is building a strong reputation in local entertainment and the arts.
