This is the official website of the Town of Mills.
Founded in 1921, Mills has a rich history, and is a part of the Oregon/Mormon Trail. The major crossing for settlers on the Platte River was the Mormon Ferry, near present North Casper, our neighbor to the East. Two of the many routes used by early settlers heading west came through Mills - Child's (Chile's) and the Poison Spider, which were considered northerly routes. The Poison Spider route ran across lower Mills, roughly along First St. to Platte Ave, then north-west along Platte and out Pendell Blvd to the west. The southerly routes that crossed at Fort Caspar on the Platte Bridge joined this route in Mills.
