Milford Michigan Home Value SearchHistory of Milford Village

The first settlers were drawn to the Huron River and the water supply that was generated from the river. In 1831 Milford Elzur and Stanley Ruggles built the first sawmill. One year later in 1832 Milford was recognized as a town. In 1869 Milford became incorporated and served as a central district for that area. Milford became one of the first towns to have electric lights due to hydropower. Other nearby towns like south Lyons for example, didn’t have electric lights until 1932.  Henry Ford built a carburetor plant and two hydroelectric stations in 1939 which gave residents of the village freedom to farm while working in the factories. In 2002 the carburetor plant was destroyed.
