Thank You Millville Volunteer Fire Department!

Date Posted: Tuesday, July 27th, 2021

The Town of Millville would like to thank the Millville Volunteer Fire Company for hosting our staff in CPR training. Steve Gilbert and Glenn Johnson did a wonderful job teaching us potentially life-saving skills, then graciously took the time to make sure our AED (commonly known as a defibrillator) was up to date and working properly. The course was extremely informative, and the guys did a great job making us comfortable with learning. A few staff members were apprehensive at first, but stated they felt they could perform CPR if needed after taking the class. Thank you again Station 84 for all of your hard work and dedication to our community.     


The History of Millville

Date Posted: Thursday, June 5th, 2014

What record does exist suggests the community came together very slowly over time. Although Millville didn’t formally organize until early in the 20th century, quite a few local families can probably trace their ancestries hundreds of years earlier. Gordon Wood Sr., who grew up in Millville, traced dozens of local genealogies in preparing his “Letters to the Little Ones” family history. And in doing so, he made this observation: many of the names appearing in the 1780 Census for the Baltimore Hundred were still in local evidence years after the town’s establishment. Among the 30 students of Wood’s graduating class of 1953 from Lord Baltimore School, fully 25 students still bore surnames mentioned in 1780, or their mothers did, he pointed out.
