MILTON - Small town at its best! 


Milton's heritage is very diverse and interesting. To the history buff, Milton provides a plethora of avenues down which one may traverse through local and U.S. history. Milton is the birthplace of five governors, a town divided in allegiance during the Civil War, home to many officers who participated in the famous War of 1812, and rich in both agricultural and political facts and figures, Milton can be a fascinating location to research.


Downtown Milton

Originally settled in 1672, it was once known as "Head of the Broadkill" for its geographic location at the head of the Broadkill River. This location, just a few miles from Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean, was ideal for shipbuilding in days of old. Many shipbuilders and sea captains lived and worked in Milton, and evidence of this life is still visible in some of the historic homes and landmarks in town.

Antique shops, restaurants, and the Milton Theater are just a few attractions in downtown Milton. Stop by the new Milton Theater for events for all ages.

DogFish Head Brewery

Located in downtown Milton this craft brewery is a must-see for the beer enthusiasts! If you are 21 and over stop by the Dogfish Head brewery for a free beer tasting. 
Kings Ice Cream

The first King's Ice Cream is located in Milton and is a local favorite. My personal favorite is Orange SherbertTo this day it is one of the original family recipes! 

Milton Memorial Park


Home to many festivals and events. My favorite is the summer concert series! Every Wednesday starting after Memorial Day through Labor Day. Concerts are free and open to the public. Bring your own chair or blanket and get ready for fun in the park.

The train in Milton Memorial park is brought to you by the Milton Lions Club. This is a town tradition!
