Winding Down For Milford Historical

On January 21, the Milford Historical Society featured an interesting presentation about Milford from the 1940s until the 70s. They note Milford's 374th anniversary is on February 12.

Braving snow that was no more than a dusting, a packed standing room only house listened to Dave Gregory’s flowing prose on recent Milford history held at the Mary Taylor Church on January 21. This was illustrated with original photos supplemented with newspaper clippings projected behind him. Many were able to relate to this more contemporary view of Milford life. Dave concluded with a visual tour of how the look of downtown has evolved within our lifetimes. In the past 70 years, Milford has gone from a quant little town to a charming and friendly small city.

The Milford Historical Society quiets down for the season, noting the 374th anniversary of the founding of Milford on February 12, 1639. We will join the Orange Historical Society in March, elect new officers and open our historic homes back up later in the year for school tours and anyone interested in learning about Milford’s almost 375 years.
