Milford, Delaware, is a unique town in the heart of southern Delaware with one foot in Kent County and the other in Sussex County. Location is a major thread of success for Milford-it is within 100 miles of Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and Baltimore and only a short 25-minute drive to the Delaware beaches. Greater Milford offers a rare blend of relaxed rural life and progressive, modern convenience. The historic district, riverfront greenway, and civic-minded residents lend a charm to Milford not found in every small town. Visit Milford of days gone by and glimpse the early English settlers who would shape tracts of land into a promising town. See how the area once called "Saw Mill Range" evolved from primitive woodlands into the commercial center known as Milford. Distinguish all the enterprising leaders who made Milford a thriving town with their innovations like canning and fruit drying and shipbuilding. The Mispillion River, Marshall's Mill, Milford Chronicle, Calvary Church, Slaughter Beach Hotel, Cedar Neck, the Levin Crapper Mansion built in 1763, Purity Row, along with the people, businesses, and events presented in this photographic celebration showcase what makes Milford an exceptional place to live and prosper.
