Description
At the head of the tidewater on the Maurice (MOR-ris) River, Millville was initially a river port. The discovery of silica sand fostered the growth of glassmaking; by the end of the 19th century the only American city to produce more glassware was Pittsburgh. Glass remains among Millville's diversified industries. The designation “The Holly City” rests on a holly farm in neighboring East Millville that once produced 14 varieties of the ornamental shrub for shipment around the world.
The region also is noted for having been the home of hunter and woodsman “Stretch” Garrison, whose alleged feats included riding sharks and porpoises up the Maurice River and raising a rooster so tall that it ate from the porch roof. Although his nickname resulted from what was done to the truth, “Stretch” remains a local folk hero.
