In greater Milford’s earliest days, more than 300 years ago, Native Americans harvested shellfish and small game and grew corn and melons. In Saw Mill Range, as Milford was then called, an active timber industry was underway. By the 1700s a thriving shipbuilding industry supported the community’s economy. Today, dozens of different enterprises in greater Milford represent a myriad of business and employment categories.
