George White Pitkin built the first log home in Millville, before the settlement was organized or named. He and his sons, Ammon Paul Pitkin and George Orrin Pitkin, built the home in 1859. The family moved into it in late spring, 1860. The present location of the home is 136 W. 100 South, in Millville. It became the Pitkin homestead. Church and school were held there. As George White Pitkin was an educated man, he taught until a "proper" church and school were built. Later, the Pitkins built a two-story rock home with walls 2 feet (0.61 m) thick. George died at the age of 72 on November 26, 1873, and is buried in the Millville cemetery.
