Founded in 1884 by Alfred A. Mullin, Mullinville already had several settlers in the area. Washington Kennedy, an Indian scout, and five other men had come to the area from Kansas City, Kansas in 1875. Three years later, in April 1878, a company of six wagon trains came to the area and began raising sheep.
A few days after Mr. Mullin founded the town, people were moving to the new town site. He built the first store which also served as a post office. Both the Santa Fe and Rock Island Railroad built tracks to Mullinville in October 1887.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
