History

Originally farmland in then Manor Township owned by John Miller, Millerstown was a crossroads for goods and sales brought from the local farming communities into Lancaster City. Later the town's name was changed to "Millersville", and it was incorporated as a separate borough in Lancaster County. Millersville is the location of the first teachers' academy in the state, established in 1854. Later, in 1855, it was chartered as a state normal school. Today, the college is Millersville University, which is part of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
