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.
