DRY SPELL The Prohibition Experience In Milford.

The rise of the temperance movement during the early twentieth-century popularized the belief that alcohol was the major cause of most personal and social problems. Prohibition in the United States was designed to reduce drinking by eliminating the businesses that manufactured, distributed and sold alcoholic beverages. This exhibit showed how Milford was involved with the prohibition movement, and to recognize just how much the brewing industry has changed today.
