Millersville was named for the first Postmaster, George Miller, on July 24, 1841. It was the first Post Office established along the Annapolis & Elkridge Railroad (the A & E). Completed in 1840, the A & E was one of the earliest rail lines in the U.S. connecting Annapolis with the Washington Branch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Today, Millersville is still a small crossroads village surrounded by existing and proposed modern residential and industrial park development. The Childs Residence, listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986, is a focal point of the town.
