Mulliken was founded by Theodore E. Potter in 1888, and a post office was established on September 20 of that year, with Albert Lawrence as postmaster. The village was named for the contractor who built the Pere Marquette Railroad, which was later acquired by the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad. The railroad established a station depot in Mulliken, which was also a stagecoach stop.

Apart from the post office, there is a tavern, a couple of restaurants, a thrift store, an auto repair shop, an auto salvage yard, a taxidermy business, a funeral home, a bank branch, and a business that produces outdoor furnishings made from recycled material. The railroad continues to run through the village, and there is a grain elevator along the tracks.
