Germans from Russia settled the Milberger area in 1876. Some lived in dugouts as they built their town. Despite the fact that the Milberger Post Office was closed in 1912, the community has maintained individuality and a keen sense of pride. Although Milberger was never incorporated, there is still a spirit of togetherness and unity of purpose in the community.
Milberger was popular with their great picnics at Becker's Grove and Memorial Day parades and celebrations.
