The Milford Historical Museum, located in Memorial Hall, 30 School St., is a great place to visit and enjoy learning about the town’s history. The Civil War and military displays are among the best in the state. You’ll also find exhibits on the boot and shoe shops, Milford pink granite, photos of Milford people who are noteworthy, sports, antique dolls, and even a Samaria warrior.

Albums with a wide array of themes, such as businesses, industries, military, schools, churches, parks and sports are on the shelf in the Lyn Lovell Research room. And, maps from 1829, 1851, 1871, and 1888, etc., are located in another room with a bookshelf featuring a collection of Civil War books.

DVDs are available for viewing with town pictures, the boot and shoe industry, and our famous Milford pink granite. Also, enjoy a movie, directed by Michael Bavaro several years ago, for a bit of nostalgia.

The Milford Historical Museum is open to visitors every Thursday from 1 to 4 p.m. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. Visitors are always welcome.
