Congratulations to Milford,

You’re the WCSX City of the Week!

Milford Factoids:

  • The Village of Milford was founded by settlers who came from New Milford, New York.

 

  • In 1831, brothers Elizer and Stanley Ruggles set up one of the first businesses in what was to become known as Milford–  a saw mill powered by Pettibone Creek.

 

  • The Village of Milford was originally part of Novi, and became a separate township in 1834.

 

  • Hydropower made it possible for Milford to become one of the first communities to have electric lights, in 1892.

 

  • Milford is now home to the General Motors Milford Proving Grounds where they test cars and trucks.

 

  • Milford still maintains its Victorian look and has a thriving downtown district.

 

  • Each year, in August, Milford hosts the Milford Memories Festival- featuring art, food and music (keep fingers crossed for this year)!
