A Brief History
In 1824, Charles Miller and Adam Johnson surveyed the town. The town became
the county seat the following year.
The town grew slowly, having only 673 residents by 1840. In 1844, a fire
erupted in the town, destroying much of Millersburg. In 1846, the village
contained four churches, two newspaper offices, thirteen stores, one iron
foundry, and one grist mill.
Over the next forty years, Millersburg’s
population tripled in size, having a population of 1,814 people in 1880. The
town consisted of two newspaper offices, seven churches, two banks, and
several additional manufacturing businesses.
The town’s largest employer was
Henry Snyder, a tile manufacturer, who employed twelve workers. Most
businesses provided materials to farmers in the surrounding countryside or
processed the farmers’ crops. The same remains true today.
Millersburg’s population was 3,326 people, making it the sixth largest urban
center in Holmes County.
