With a current population of about 1,500, Milford is a small town that can offer a glimpse of the past. Settlers established the town when ranching came to the area in the 1870s. However, Milford was not designated a town until after construction of the San Pedro, Los Angeles, and Salt Lake Railroad in 1880. The town is a testament to the the story of the pioneers who built railroads, developed mines, and brought cattle to the ranges.
Today the city as a hospital, outdoor swimming pool, airport and a 5-hole golf course, and is know as a great jumping off place for adventure.
