The Milford Historical Museum is now open for our 36th season. In honor of our opening the Historical Society will be hosting an open house from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 19th. The museum is located just one block east of Main St. at 124 E. Commerce St in Milford.

This family friendly event will allow guests to visit our museum and see display's depicting Milford over the years. We will also be holding demonstrations inside and outside the museum. On our front lawn you will be able to see candle dipping, woodworking, yarn spinner, basket weaving, and blacksmith demonstrations thru out the day. A tent will be set up allowing visitors to see how Civil war soldiers lived during the war.
Visitors will see demonstrations on candle dipping, wood working, and a blacksmith. Also on hand will be the Huron Valley Numismatic Club that will be able to answer questions from coin collector enthusiastic. Inside the museum hear stories on Milford Civil War Veterans interned at Oak Grove Cemetery and learn customs from the Victorian Era. Hands on demonstration will take place in our log cabin display where kids will be able to make a corn husk doll and in the kitchen see how butter was made.
It will be a day full of fun activities for the whole family! Admission to the museum is free and open to all; you do not need to be a member to attention.
Join us for a fun filled afternoon!
I'm always amazed when I talk to life-long residents of Milford who admit that they have never been to the Museum. It's a fun place to visit and is full of interesting bits of Milford's history. This Open House is a great way to get acquainted with the museum and the kids will surely find interesting and fun things to see and do.
