Millsap, Texas

History

Millsap. The history of Millsap dates back to the time when travelers stopped at the Fuller Millsap home on Rock Creek, a place distinguished for many Indian raids, the stage line passing there from Palo Pinto to Weatherford and points east. A store there was owned by Uncle Ben Porter (father of Frank and Boyd Porter of Weatherford). When the Texas and Pacific Railroad built through this section the post-office was moved to the railroad and the new town was called Millsap, perpetuating the name of this pioneer family.
