Overview

Historic Milford is situated along the Little Miami River, one of the primary reasons settlers in this area flourished. Rich farmlands and excellent waterpower with mill potential offered the pioneers a good life in the frontier. Milford was the site of the first Methodist class in the Northwest Territory beginning in 1797. Other denominations quickly followed, and Milford today remains a community with strong church ties. As farms and mills flourished, other businesses began to appear. Introduction of the railroads allowed more products to come in and out of Milford to nearby Cincinnati and beyond. A school, new businesses, and fine homes were built in the busy little city by the river. Residents enjoyed opera and orchestra performances in the ornate city hall building, as well as boxing and other sporting events. Still today, Milford reflects these early values and offers a community based on a rich heritage.
