Community Spotlight - Milford

Settled as part of the town of Mendon in 1662, Milford made a name for itself as an early New England mill and mining town. Conveniently located on the Charles, Mill, and Blackstone rivers, the town utilized its natural resources to drive its early economic rise.

 

In addition to ample waterpower, the area yielded large deposits of beautiful pink Milford granite, discovered in 1870. Highly sought after, the polished stone was utilized in projects the world over and was even used in the building of the Washington Monument and the original Penn Station in New York City.

 

Just as Milford’s geography played a large part in the town’s early success, so too has its location provided a push for its latest revitalization over the past half-century. As the town’s economy stalled in the middle part of the 20th century, many residents made their way to other areas in search of work. Luckily, in 1969, Interstate 495 was built, making Milford easily accessible to this new corridor of transportation. Since then, the growing town has been moving at highway speeds.

 

Milford is still all about growth, especially growing locally, and you don’t have to look any farther than CraftRoots Brewing for proof. Not satisfied with simply joining in on the emerging craft beer scene, the local brewery and taproom was named the fastest growing brewery in the entire nation in 2018.

 

Community events continue to grow as well, with the inaugural July 4th parade in 2018 and the Celebrate Milford festival now in its third successful year.
