What a wonderful collection of images of the Historic Milford Green. When I think of the Green I automatically have an image of the beautiful Artists and Artisana Fair held by Denise m Curt for nearly 50 years. The exquisite craftsmanship and artistry of her clients was a joy to experience for me and the Green was always reverently respected by the vendors. I was amazed how on the day after the show the Green looked like no one had even been there. I missed seeing the show terribly this year.

I too enjoyed seeing these photos. What I remember as a child is going to Milford Center and the traffic cop stood in a barrel directing traffic. Also at Christmas there were golden garlands and a large chandelier in the intersection as well.

Ryan, very interesting pictures. One piece of important information regarding the Green was omitted. The Green, as well as the city land around the City Hall Pond, North Street Pond,, Jefferson Park, Higby Park, & the Parsons complex Is now an Arboretum. The Milford Tree Commission & Milford Trees, Inc. got a grant to pay for the design by Landscape Architect Ed Vaughn. The plan was presented to the Parks Department and accepted by them. Since it"s inception more than 50 new trees have been planted at no cost to the taxpayers. The trees have been donated by Milford Trees Inc.and citizens of the town comemorating family and friends both living and passed on. In January there will be an exhibit at the library showing maps and other information concerning the Milford Legacy Arboretum. Kate Orecchio. V.Chm. Milford Tree Commission
