The priest of the "Saint Nikolai" church, situated in Milestii Mici and found in 1870, Emmanuel Brihunet, revealed some references about the village in old manuscripts, dating from 30th of March, 1528.
In these ancient chronicles it is mentioned that the King Petru Rares gave to its grandson Lashko-Voda from Isnovet village three other villages, two of which were situated below, and one higher than Isnovet River.
Lashko had a lot of other heritage, so he gave one of the villages to his relative Milea who immortalized his name into the future commercial brand "Milestii Mici".
