It grew up around the early twentieth century coal mines in the area and at its peak had a population of about 1,500 and was the largest city in the county. The Cannel City post office opened in 1902.
The Ohio and Kentucky Railway track reached the site of Cannel City in 1901 and until 1933 it serviced the Kentucky Block Cannel Coal Company and the local lumber industry.
