MILROY, a city in sections 16 and 17 of Westline, next west of Lucan, platted in March 1902 and incorporated on November 18 of the same year, "was named for Major General Robert H. Milroy, a gallant Union soldier during the early days of the war of the rebellion" (Stennett, Place Names of the Chicago and Northwestern Railways, 1908, p. 102). He was born near Salem, Ind., June 11, 1816; was graduated at Norwich University, Vt., 1843; served in the Mexican War and in the Civil War; was superintendent and agent for Indian affairs in Washington Territory, 1872-85; and died in Olympia, Wash., March 29, 1890.

The post office opened in 1902, with Jerry A. Looney as postmaster; when platted by the Western Town Lot Company, the townsite covered a large tract of land in sections 16-20; lots were sold on auction on April 9, 1902; a petition presented on February 7, 1905, reduced the townsite size to 160 acres in sections 16 and 17. A well-known business, the Milroy Eating House, built in 1898 in Vesta, was moved to a site near the Chicago and North Western Railway tracks in 1902.
