Millheim

Millheim was established eight miles south of Bellville in Austin County about 1845, when a mill was constructed on Clear Creek. The founders of the community were German immigrants. In the 1850s E. G. Maetze started the first school at the settlement, with courses conducted in German. By 1856 a singing society had been organized. A post office was established in the community by 1878. In 1885 the town had a population of 100, as well as a brewery, a gin, a grist and saw mill, and several stores. However, when the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway survey bypassed the town to the east, the towns growth reversed. By 1915 the local post office had been discontinued in favor of rural mail delivery from Peters. The population was reported as 150 in 1915, but by 1936 it had fallen again to an estimated 100. The number of residents declined rapidly after World War II, though in 1948, the last year for which population statistics are available for Millheim, the town still reported an estimated 100 inhabitants.
