Incorporated in 1794, Milford began as a farming town, but at the arrival of the railroad in the 1850’s, the town became known as the “Granite Town” because its granite was used in many buildings and skyscrapers in New York and Washington, D.C.
Today, the historic charm of Milford and the downtown area are preserved with the support of the Milford Downtown Ongoing Improvement Team, and the area remains a beautiful location to shop, dine, work, and reside.
