We are a community born of the river. It is the mill at the crossing of the Mispillion that formed our name. This river was home to two centuries of shipbuilding that made us a center of maritime industry. This river remains our link to the vital waters of this great peninsula.
Though the nature of the river has changed, it is no less important to our lives. It bisects our downtown, makes us the heart of two counties, and is the centerpiece of a rebirth centered on recreation, the arts, and community.
Our downtown is the heart of our creative transformation. Our galleries, shops, and performance spaces are gathering places for people from all walks of life. Our events allow us to celebrate the place we call home.
We remain a center of commerce for a rural community, an escape from the pressures of urban life, and a community centered on family. We are the kind of place where a children’s class inspires leaders, a landscape inspires artists, and a history inspires vision.
We are Milford, Delaware- River town, Art Town, Home Town.
Our design committee keeps downtown looking great, whether being stewards of our downtown's long-term vision, or painting the town with color with our volunteer drive Milford in Bloom program.
We are the experts of downtown. We know where to go, and who to talk to to get things moving. If you want to start a business or invest in Downtown Milford, come see us first!
