Milford Property Management

Located within Milford Township, the village of Milford lies in Oakland County. In 1832, Elizur and Stanley Ruggles constructed a sawmill in what would later become Milford Township - which occurred in 1834 with the official organization of the township. Shortly after the area was organized as a township, the first gristmill was built, and the first postal office was established. The area was officially incorporated as a village in 1969. Milford was one of the area's first communities to have electric lights in 1892, thanks to hydropower - drawn from the Huron River, Lower Mill Pond, and later the Upper Mill Pond. The following year, telephone service became available to the village of Milford - making it one of the most technologically advanced communities during that time.

By 1939, Henry Ford had built a carburetor plant and two hydroelectric stations initially intended to assist locals with their agricultural work so they would still be able to work in the factories as well. The Art Deco station is still standing today, and serves as a popular point of interest in the village, sited by the Milford Historical Society - which is also located within the city limits. The historical society is "Committed to doing all that we can to preserve, and make available for sharing, the history of our community." (http://www.milfordhistory.org) The Milford Historical Society provides information, historical data, artifacts, workshops, and other resources that are aimed towards portraying the way life was lived when the village was first founded.
