MILFORD TOWNSHIP / VILLAGE OF MILFORD

The Village of Milford is a classic example of small town mid-America. The village serves as a commercial center for its population and has lots of vitality and charm. Shops, restaurants and recreational facilities regularly bring visitors from surrounding communities. The banks of the Mill Pond in the town center along with the pavilion in Central Park offer residents a pleasant place to stroll and relax.
