While not officially incorporated until 1959, the small town of Black Diamond was first settled in the 1880s when the area was known as a rural coal mining town, drawing many European immigrants to the area for work. Modern day Black Diamond has changed somewhat, but is still known for its small town charm, complete with a bakery originally started in 1884.
