In addition to Memphis, Gossett Mazda Hyundai Mitsubishi is proud to serve the smaller towns surrounding our home city. One such town is the wonderful town of Millington, TN. Keep reading to learn a little bit about some of our favorite things Millington has to offer, including a rich history and plenty of attractions!
Millington began like so many other towns in the United States. We have the railroad to thank for the growth of this beautiful town. Of course, it was plantation-owner George Millington who donated the land for both the new railroad station and housing. The city was named in his honor.
That was in the late 1800s, and Millington’s residents certainly didn’t waste any time getting the area up and running. In only a couple of decades, you could find all the signs of a refined community here, like a library, bus service, and a local newspaper.
The Millington of today is a fun place to be, filled with restaurants and shopping destinations. The Memphis International Speedway is here and it’s the best of both worlds. You’ll find big events at the track like the World Series of Drag Racing held every year in late August. Other times, like at the weekly Test and Tune events, it feels like a small, community track.
Wine connoisseurs love Millington. That’s because the Old Millington Winery is here! It’s a boutique-style winery that offers everything from semi-dry whites to red ports to sweet wines. Visit in the Spring or the Fall on Sundays and enjoy live and mellow music on the outdoor patio.
In many ways, Millington is still that bustling town that formed around a railroad station. Whether you live here or you are just visiting, you’ll find industrious people here just full of neighborly spirit. Just ask Justin Timberlake--he’s a famous Millington resident!
