Milford PA   -

Milford was included on the list of "cool towns" by Arthur Frommer's Budget Travel magazine and Atlantic Magazine called Milford "the prettiest county seat in America." "The beauty of the Delaware River Valley, only 90 minutes' drive from Manhattan, will astonish first-time visitors. The lovely valley's quaintest town is Milford." - Condé Nast Traveler.

"Milford, PA., remains a rarity: a spot filled with natural beauty just 70 miles from New York City that hasn't been overrun by vacationers and weekend homeowners." - The Wall Street Journal. "New York's rich and powerful throughout the late 19th century has been reincarnated as a civilized 21st-century hideaway." - Travel + Leisure, June 2007. "Milford is now being re-discovered by artistic types looking for a nearby weekend retreat." - Westchester Magazine, June 2007. "...real show stopper: the historically rich and cute-as-a-button river town of Milford." -The Observer Online, May 2012. No. 3 in top ten list of US small towns. -Urban Titan, May 2012.

The area along the Delaware River had long been settled by the Lenape, an Algonquian-speaking indigenous tribe that lived in the mid-Atlantic coastal areas, including western Long Island, and along this river at the time of European colonization. The English also called the people the Delaware, after the river they named after one of their colonial leaders. Milford was founded in 1796 after the American Revolutionary War as a United States settlement on the Delaware River by Judge John Biddis, one of Pennsylvania's first four circuit judges. He named the settlement after his ancestral home in Wales.

Milford has a large number of historical significant buildings, many constructed in the nineteenth century and early twentieth centuries. Some are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, while numerous others are included in the Milford Historic District, also listed on the NRHP. Of the 655 buildings in the district, 400 of them have been deemed to be historically significant. The district is characterized by a variety of Late Victorian architecture, as well as Mid-19th Century Revival, and Late 19th and 20th Century Revivals.
