Point of No Return

Much like the town of Millsboro itself, this publication was created and crafted out of a love for a community that has a rich tradition, and a seemingly bright future.

We set out to do this project with the intent of sharing the history of Millsboro, explaining where the town is today and projecting what the future holds, based on businesses coming in, developments being planned and the efforts of local organizations to help improve the quality of life for those who live or work in Millsboro.

Make no mistake about it — Millsboro is the ultimate example of the changing landscape of Sussex County over the years. National stores have begun to take root in the town, the population has soared and the community has become a diverse conglomerate of long-time residents and more recent transplants representing nearly every race, religion and nationality on the globe.

But look more closely and you still find a downtown featuring unique small businesses, a family atmosphere and the general feel of a tight-knit community that embraces the changes around them, but clings tightly to their history at the same time.

It is a pleasure for us to have the opportunity to cover Millsboro for our paper, and an honor to dive into its past.
