Broad Street in Milliken
Milliken is another town built on the railroad and named for a railroad official, John D. Milliken in this case.
The Dent Site, an archaeological site where evidence of man existing alongside the woolly mammoth has been found, is very close to Milliken. The relics indicate a Clovis culture connection with artifacts as much as 11,000 years old being found. The site was discovered close to the Dent railroad station when Frank Garner, a railroad employee found large animal bones sticking out of the ground after a period of heavy rainfall and flooding in 1932. The location is on top of an ancient alluvial fan alongside the South Platte River.
