The village of Millersburg was established by Pennsylvania native John Miller on the bank of Hinkston Creek to take advantage of a mill site along the Maysville Road. A mill dam still spans the creek. Some early log and stone buildings still stand along the Maysville Road. North of Millersburg the old road parallels the current route creating the effect of braided roads.
