Inspire and engage your students with local history!
Milford’s history is bigger than the average person may think. Though it may have started as a small town, at one time this little city was an agricultural, industrial, and social hub of Southern Delaware. We encourage school groups of all ages to come and visit to experience the true stories of Milford’s history!
