In the July issue of Delaware Beach Life, Milton was featured in “Home-Style History”:
Situated on the banks of the Broadkill River, Milton is not unlike most old towns. Its history is rich, and various industries — from shipping and shipbuilding to button-making and canning —shaped its demographics, culture and architecture. What is special about Milton, named after English poet John Milton in 1807, is its eclectic assortment of homes and buildings, reflecting centuries of varying architectural styles.
“We have an incredibly wide variety of architecture for such a small town,” says Allison Schell, executive director of the Milton Historical Society & Museum. “You can literally walk down the street and see two or three completely different architectural styles in one block.”
