Maustown

Maustown or Mausetown is at the intersection of Millikin Road and Princeton-Glendale Road (Ohio 747) in sections 2 and 3 in Liberty Township.

It was named Maustown because the Maus family is believed to have been the first to live there, starting with the Nicholas Maus family. The community name was misspelled as Mausetown briefly on state highway signs.

Pronounciation of the name has been disputed as either "Moss town" or "Mouse town." In the 1970s, some residents tried to change the name to North Princeton.
