Millersview is an unincorporated community in Concho County, Texas, United States. It is located at the intersection of Farm-to-Market Roads 765 and 2134, near the west fork of the Mustang Creek, and is a dozen miles southeast of Paint Rock.[1][2]

It was named for Edward D. Miller, who co-founded the town with Henry Barr. It was granted a post office in 1903 and was still open in the 1990s.[1] After the population dropped to 70 in 1970, the population has stayed consistently around 75 since 2000.[3] Several buildings still stand today, including the school's former gym, which is still active, but as a community center.

The town is thought to be the only one in the United States to use the name Millersview.[2]
