"Holly City," as Millville is often called for its legacy of holly tree cultivation, offers a charming hometown surrounded by farmland, bay recreation, and wildlife preserves. The former Holly Farm is now the home of the Brian A. Parent Center, combining conference facilities with art galleries and a nature preserve. Millville has also transformed a part of its downtown district into the Glasstown Center Arts District. Many lovely parks, lakes, streams, and nature centers add to the beauty of the community. The Millville Army Airfield Museum offers a glimpse of World War II History, while the annual spring air show of "Wings over Millville" features vintage and high-tech aircraft in flight. The neighboring Maurice River Township is equally rich in natural beauty and wildlife. This area supports exceptional fishing and boating recreation, offering serene settings for residential development in quiet villages and open countryside.
