In Reply to: History Wake County by Walter Broadwell Jr. of 1372

According to the book "Wake, Capital County of North Carolina," Vol I, by Elizabeth Reid Murray, Milburnie had a paper mill beginning in 1855. It was located on the Neuse River, and the first president was Sion H. Rogers, with H. W. Husted as treasurer. The post office was established in 1858. The Union army burned it down in 1865. It was never rebuilt. The author of the book said she couldn't find much information about the establishment of the mill.
