The Immaculate Conception Church is one of the first things you will see driving into Millhousen and its tall steeple is hard to miss. The first 13 families who settled in Millhousen were German Catholics and they built the town around the church. The current church is the third structure that the parish has been through and it was built in the 1860s.
