Milford was given the nickname ‘The Granite Town in the Granite State’ because of its incredible granite quarries.
Incorporated in 1794, it was originally named Mill Ford and was comprised of land from neighboring towns of Amherst, Hollis, Miles Slip and Brookline. Milford was a mill town drawing its hydropower from the Souhegan River.
The Milford Historical Society preserves and maintains all of the town’s artifacts from the town’s charter to its historical buildings. The office for the historical society is located in one of the town’s oldest buildings, the Carey House. Milford played an important part in history by being a major stop for the Underground Railroad in the 1800’s.
The town of Milford places a high emphasis on education. There are 2 elementary schools, one middle school and one high school in this community. Offering a challenging curriculum, each school offers programs for both in school education and extra curricular activities. Programs for ‘gifted’ students are also offered for those who qualify. The Applied Technology Center offers student real life learning experiences in many different fields. Children from surrounding towns attend the Center on a tuition basis.
There are wide ranges of outdoor activities offered to the residents of this community. The choice of biking, jogging, picnicking or just relaxing in one of the five different parks makes this one of many reasons why Milford is a wonderful place to live.
