This website is dedicated to the Michelin Plant on Ford Avenue, the Evans Family, Dr Forney and his sons, who they have given so much to the town of Milltown and for playing an important role in forming the town we love and respect. Also dedication goes to the remaining historical sites that are remaining that we hold dear to our heart, also to the ones that we have lost to the senseless disregard of our town history and to what makes this town so special, the residents that live and work here. We need to stop the senseless destruction of our historical landmarks and Milltown's history now before its to late and is lost forever.
Talking about our Town History is one Thing- Saving it is Another

The people of the John C Evans Project and hundreds of Milltown residents are concerned the direction Milltown is heading.
Milltown was stated by hard working caring folk who had deep ties into its history, wonderful and unique heritage.
From the first Americanized Michelin tire and rubber manufacturing plant, the Raritan River Railroad and its importance to Milltown, the now lost and gone forever Forney House, The Mill, the Kuhlthau Historical District with its shops and historical buildings, have been demolished and to the many other historical buildings and sites that have or will be lost if the present disregard for Milltown's history and heritage is left unchecked.
For the most part, Milltown residents do not want to see their quaint, quiet, friendly, historic walking town to become just like any other town or to have big business come in and tell residents what they think we need in town.
