City Hall sits at the mouth of the Wepawaug River that flows into the Long Island Sound downtown. The building, with its white pillars and wooden door, still reads "Town Hall" because Milford -- which is nearly 355 years old -- became a city relatively recently due to population growth. More than 52,000 people now call the "Small City with a Big Heart" home. The mayor's office, the city attorney and the grant coordinator are housed at City Hall. Other government offices can be found at the nearby Parsons Government Center.
