If this is your first visit to the site, your might want to find out why we were formed in 1977 in “About Us – The Society“. If you are already familiar with our group and are looking for information about the historical aspects of the Town of Milton, the you may want to check out our Archives, browse the contents of the Library or learn about our Historic Properties. For information about the men and women of Milton who have served since the War of 1812 through to the Korean Conflict, please check the Military section of the site.
