    Thanks for the welcome, Barbara.  I lived on West Church St and had a good friend...Jeff Lins...who lived on Clay St...the number 49 jumps to mind although I'm not sure that's correct.  He lived a few doors up from Metz (?) grocery store on the corner of Clay and West Church St..  Carl

    Hi Barbara!  I'm thrilled you are running this website.  I have pictures of my family and the Fireman's band that I will post.  I went to Germany this summer to meet cousins with whom I corresponded via email.  We found each other through the website of our great-grandfather's hometown!  Websites like these are such a rich and valuable resource!

      I would like to send my German cousins a copy of the latest Milltown history book.  How can I get additional copies?  I have been able to purchase copies of the first Milltown book through ebay.  Thanks!

    Is the old Firehouse coming Down on Main Street? The Sentinel article states the new firehouse will be on the old firehouse site?
