Milltown was the dream of Taylor and Kendrick. They would lay out the townsite in November of 1903. This would make Milltown and incredibly early suburb of Goldfield. Columbia and Jumbo would be two others. Milltown was just southwest of the rich Florence Hill.

It was not only a milling site for Goldfield gold, but in the middle of some rich mines. [collateralhistory.com]
