Millville Homes for Sale
Tall trees and well kept homes line Main Street and a blinking red is the only light in town. The town park is maintained and regularly updated by a local park commission and is the site of the annual firemen’s carnival during the first week of July. During this special week, the firemen host a pet and toy parade, as well as a renowned Fourth of July parade. The homes along the parade route seem to share in the excitement as owners tidy up flowerbeds and deck their porches with flags. The firemen display two sets of fireworks, and the tiny community bursts at the seams with visitors and natives alike.
Millville is also proud of its little league field which is kept in tip-top shape by dads, local contractors, and dads who are local contractors. In the same way, a group of moms coordinate Camp Can-Do for kids in the park in August. (See http://www.millvilleboro.org/ for community events.) Millville also features a clean and spacious community pool, where the lifeguards know most kids by name. In fact, most everyone knows everyone else by name in this tight knit little town. Outsiders are noticed, and welcomed, but should expect an integration curve. The process is worth it; with active churches in the area, and a school district that is inextricably intertwined in the life of the community, Millville people are ready to rally to help families get the care they resources they need if they find themselves facing tragedy. Millville also offers Camp Victory, which is a camp in Greenwood for children that have special disabilities.
This community bears the imprint of its Quaker history. The Quaker Meeting House, still used for services today, is just across from the school, and a Quaker faith-based private school offers K-8 education in Greenwood Valley, just a few miles outside of town. The Millville School mascot is the Quakers, and the borough itself does not permit the sale of any liquor licenses. In the local diner, photographs from the old railroad at the south end of town and the old gristmill document the town’s proud origins, achievements and notable personalities. Some of the current notable personalities are probably found at the tables in the diner and can augment the photographs with their own stories!
Many self-employed contractors and small business owners call Millville their home. Girton Manufacturing is the only manufacturer in the borough itself, but the school district employs many local residents as well. However, Rt. 42 offers quick access to the Bloomsburg area and relative proximity to Danville offers possibilities there as well. Even the Williamsport area is just a 30-minute commute.
