THE VILLAGE OF McMILLAN
Source: History of Marathon County Wisconsin and
Representative Citizens (1913) written by Louis Marchetti, pages 507-508
The population of the village was almost entirely limited to the owners of this large mill establishment, mentioned in chapter on settlement on the “Wisconsin Central Towns,” and their employees. It had a population of over two hundred some years after its incorporation, but has steadily declined.
Since the mill stopped operation in 1911, no business of any importance has been carried on. B. F. McMillan still resides there and he is heavily interested in other industrial establishments in Marathon county, as for instance, the Mosinee Paper Mill. He is a strong advocate of good county roads and a practical road builder. When the city of Wausau began macadamizing its streets in 1901, he was good enough to lend his two carts for rock hauling and unloading crushed rocks to the city without charge. He has a farm and is a stockraiser, in which enterprise A. E. Beebe, the village postmaster, is interested with him. There is a school in the village conducted on the plan of a district school.
