Millersville was founded over a century ago by John Miller, and was
first called Millersburg. Then Millerstown, and lastly Millersville.
Millersville, spread over an area of over two miles, has never become
a compact village. The principal thoroughfare is the turnpike leading
from Lancaster to Millersville, which was established in 1839.
The village has made considerable progress of late, and is now the
largest unincorporated town in Lancaster County, having a population
of over twelve hundred.
Millersville has improved much within the last twelve years. It now has three general stores, one grocery-store, one shoe-store, on agricultural-implement store, one agricultural-implement manufactory, three hotels, four coach-manufactories, one lumber-yard, two coal-yards, a number of cigar-manufactories, and other business places. Millersville is the location of the first teachers' academy in the state, established in 1854. Later, in 1855, it was chartered as a state normal school. Today, the college is Millersville University, which is part of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
