Sign Project Grant

On August 18, 2001 the Millheim Borough received a $1,000.00 Grant from the Centre County Community Foundation, Inc. in State College.  This grant allowed the Borough to replace sixteen plaques that had been placed on historical buildings in the Borough during our Bicentennial celebration in 1988.  As you walk along Main Street many of these signs are prominently displayed on these downtown businesses and homes.  The largest sign is located on Mill Street, near St. John’s Lutheran Church, at the site of the old Gunkle’s Grist and Sawmill, which operated under various names until 1927. 

Welcome to Millheim signWe were also able to purchase and place two “Welcome to Millheim” signs.  These were placed at our eastern and western boundaries on Route 45.  As you travel to Penn State for football games or happen to be in Centre County for any reason, stop and browse through our quaint shops, rest at our gazebo in Fountain Park, and read the signs to learn a little of the history of Millheim.
