1. Milford WWI Veterans Monument relocation
The Milford WWI monument will be relocated and rededicated in June 2011 during Milford's centennial festival. It will be moved to W.E. Thomas Park in Milford.

If any family members of Milford's WWI veterans would be interested in meeting with members of the Milford Borough Historical Society we would like to hear about your family members. Perhaps we can give you information about your family as well.
