Community Spotlight - Millis

Overview

Named for its founder, Lansing Millis, Millis is a quintessential picturesque New England suburb. Just nineteen miles southwest of Boston, and easily accessible by routes 109 and 115, it is made up of lovely residential and rural areas and is dotted with serene lakes, rolling meadows. and bubbling brooks.

 

History

Formerly East Medway, Millis, a town rich in history, incorporated as a separate town in 1885. Millis is home to several historical buildings with the most notable being the Niagara Hall Fire House. This recently renovated firehouse was built in 1878 and is covered almost completely on the inside by flowing murals created by Boston artist George Story. The town is currently pushing to restore the original artwork and return this one-of-a-kind historical landmark to its former glory. 

Recreation
