Our Millersville Marker
provides a fascinating focal point
for the park.
So, what's the story?
Millersville at Fall Creek Preserve
When you stop at the Preserve, you are standing in the heart of Millersville, a town named for the busy grist mills clustered around Fall Creek in the early 1800s. The round concrete plaza there is scored with etchings like that of an old mill grindstone. The sculpture recalls Millersville's colorful history, reminiscent of mill stones, the wheat that was ground by those stones, the flowing creek waters that powered the mills in the area, and birds who have long watched over the beautiful Fall Creek valley. Take some time to enjoy this magnificent artwork!
At the Preserve, you'll also enjoy the amazing natural beauty of the Fall Creek Greenway and a pond that were, not long ago, only hidden gems. They have been uncovered and made user-friendly, in harmony with nature and the native landscape.
Heartfelt thanks to all who made this possible: providers of grants, consulting and services, donors and an army of volunteers who worked in the park over the last few years!
