Created on March 11, 1839 from parts of Venango and Armstrong Counties and named for the Clarion River. Clarion, the county seat, was incorporated as a borough on April 6, 1841.

Formed on land acquired from Indians by the Treaty of Fort Stanwix in 1784, it was first owned by the Holland, Pickering, and Bingham land development companies. Settlement began in 1797, and a lumber industry sprang up which relied on floating logs down the Clarion River to the Allegheny. Boat building developed and lumber was also used for making charcoal—needed for a local iron industry—but the lumber based economy played out by 1900 because the trees were not replaced. Cook Forest State Park is the home of the only significant stand of primeval trees in the state. An oil boom lasted from 1869 to 1879; bituminous coal mining began in 1877. Surface strip bituminous coal mining has been in operation since 1920. Having both fire clay and natural gas, a pottery industry flourished in the nineteenth century. The Philadelphia and Erie Railroad was built through the county in the 1870s. The 40,000 population of 1880 was not equaled again until the 1980 census. There is a farming tradition; in total receipts from farm products Clarion ranks about 44th among the 67 counties. Farms occupy 31 percent of the land. There were Underground Railroad stations at Clarion, Rimersburg, and Shippensville.
