History


Research was completed by Cheryl Michaels and Janet Ross in 2009.

McMillen Park is located at 500-P Carey Street (Highland Drive). The park was renamed in 1966 in honor of Bill McMillen. Mr. McMillen served as a Sidney police officer, and then as a city council member and mayor. Bill was a past recipient of the Chamber of Commerce Zenith Award and the NAACP Brotherhood Award.

He had been active in many community causes, but he probably was best known for his coat program for needy children. Since Highland Park at one time was next to the old factory from which the coat program was operated, it seemed appropriate that the park be renamed after Mr. McMillen.
