Millheim is an unincorporated settlement in Cinque Hommes Township in Perry County, Missouri.
The name Millheim is most probably an American corruption of the German Müllheim meaning ‘mill home’. One theory is that the name was conferred for the mill. Although, it is possible the name comes from one of the cities in Germany’s Rhine or Ruhr regions, or is one of the German names brought by the Saxon migration to Perry County.
A well-known mill was built at the present-site of Millheim as early as 1856 by Rudolph Conrad and Mike Eddleman, and a post office was established in 1891.
Millheim is situated in Cinque Hommes Township, and is approximately 8 miles south of Perryville, Missouri.
