History

William Mullica House

Spicerville was the name of a village on the south bank of Raccoon Creek, which is also called Raccoon River, named after prominent landowner Jacob Spicer. Mullica Hill originally referred to the village on the north bank of Raccoon Creek, named after the sons of Eric Pålsson Mullica, whose sons William, Eric, Olag and John Mullica began purchasing land here in 1704. Eventually, both villages became known as just Mullica Hill as the original name of Eric’s grandfather’s house in the Middle of Finland “Mullikkamäki” (mäki means hill). Some of Mullica Hill’s historic buildings were built following the Civil War, notably the town hall that still stands today. The period of industrial and agricultural growth during and after the Civil War is commemorated by a reenactment every fall. In 1991, the entire village was placed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Mullica Hill Historic District.[9]
