Millstadt, Illinois, is located in the southwest part of St. Clair County. The Village was laid out in 1836 and was incorporated in 1875. The original residents were settlers from Germany. Much of the charm and character of the village is traceable to this heritage including many of the well-preserved 19th century brick buildings which they built. If you take a walking tour of the Village, you will still see many of the original buildings. Many of the Millstadt residents are direct descendants of the original early settlers of the Village of Millstadt and can share many history stories.
The above pictured Fire Department is the winner of the 2019 Landmark Award and displayed on the cover of the 2020 Millstadt Historical Society (MHS) Calendar. The department is Illinois’ oldest, continuous, all-volunteer fire department originally known as the Centreville Union Fire Company as Millstadt was still known as Centreville then. It’s gone through many updates and moves which you can learn about by obtaining the MHS 2020 Calendar.
