For 12 or 13 years starting in 2000, the web site Milfordpictures.com collected some great pictures of our hometown.  One feature of the web site was a guestbook where people who visited could leave comments.  Though this is no longer an active guestbook, the information contained had so many entries and so many names and memories that we thought it would be a good piece of Milford History.  Enjoy!

I live in Orlando, FL. I was born and raised in New Hampshire and my favorite place I lived was in Milford. I am extremely homesick at times and I love to come to this site and look at the beautiful pictures of my hometown .

My great grandfather, William Chase Whitmarsh was born in Milford, New Hampshire to Elizabeth Ann Wright and William Faxon Whitmarsh January 1, 1855. His parents and other family left Milford about three years later moving to Denmark, Iowa. William Faxon Whitmarsh was born January 27, 1829 in Lyndeborough and died of malaria following the Civil War. He was in the Union Army and part of the occupation troops in Arkansas. He is buried in the National Cemetery in Little Rock, Arkansas.
When my great grandfather was 78 years old he traveled from Arkansas to New Hampshire on his bicycle to visit family with whom he kept in touch. He stayed for six months or so and on his way home, somewhere in Missouri he collapsed and his sons had to bring him home. He died two weeks later. Some day soon I want to visit Milford and see some of the old places he mentioned in the letters my grandmother saved.
Great site!

I'm doing a research project on the granite industry in
Milford - your pictures were very helpful and gave me some
perspective on what life looked like back then during the
era of the granite industry. Thank you!

My mistake. I indicated I came from Mont Vernon. Nope. Lived there in my childhood.
I now reside in Amherst, Massachusetts.

I enjoyed seeing your photos. My mothers family is from
Milford,NH and growing up I spent MANY times there.
My mother was Angelina Calderara married name of Quinno.
She used to work at the Milford Cabinet way back when.
She married my father in 1954 and moved to Woburn, MA.
I like keeping in touch with the town through relatives
and sites like this.
Thank you.

Hello all!
This web site is just fantastic! I LOVED looking at all the old pics, and even made one of them my wallpaper! I grew up in Milford, and now reside in Orlando. I just went back, though, last week, to visit my family, who all still live in the area. Mom & dad are still in Milford, one sister lives in Brookline, the other in Keene. My little brother Craig lives in Rutland, VT now. If anyone wants to catch up, please contact me!
Keep up the great work!

I finally returned to Milford for a visit on July 5, 2004 after leaving in August 1961. As the oval came into view years of memories came flooding back of my childhood and early teen years that I lived there. Much has changed, to be sure, but thankfully much is still the same and I was able to find my way around pretty easily. Originally, my father and Grandpa had built a home on Merrimac Street which is still there, tucked back in the woods. Then we lived on Elm Street. Sad to say our neighbors house is now the Dunkin Donuts and our house was where some type of wood store is now. The most amazing thing to me however happened when we visited Haywards Trading Post. There I picked up the Images of America, Milford book and just couldn't believe that my second grade class picture was in it. I, of course, had to have the book and have since enjoyed reading through it remembering how Milford used to be. I was especially sorry that the White Elephant Store had burned down many years ago. I went there quite often with my parents. Congratulations on a wonderful book and thanks for the great memories. My parents were Parker and Brenda Pratt and we lived at 75 Elm Street.

I was remembering the Crazy Teepee and decided to look it up
to see if it was still around. I used to go there when I was
little, some 27 to 30 years ago. I was 3 when my parents
moved to Amherst and we left when I was 7 or 8.

Graduated from MHS in 1965. My daughter, Maria Kulianin, is very fond of Milford, where her grandparents (Neil and Olga Kelley) still live. Whenever we are in Milford, we walk the town, and I tell her about living there in the 1950's and 60's. Congratulations on the site; it's really a treat!

Thoroughly enjoyed the discovery of this wonderful website and have added it to my favorites to be visited often. It is helpful for genealogy research I am doing on my Bowler family.

Though born in Nashua in 1943, I lived in Milford only as an infant before my parents, George and Inez (Peterson) Bowler, moved to Manchester when my father took a job with the War Department at Grenier Field. Before going to work for the War Department, however, my family were long-time residents of Milford; my father owned and operated Bowler's Esso Service on the town common and was a long-time, active member of the Milford Fire Department. My grandparents, Charles and Sarah (Antill) Bowler, were also long-time residents of Milford; my grandfather owned and operated a granite quary in Milford before his demise in 1928.

My husband, Gene Williams, and I now live in Magnolia, Delaware. I would be most grateful to receive any information or memories anyone may have of my family for inclusion in my extensive genealogy research.

Regards, Sally (Bowler) Williams

What great pictures! Lived in Milford until 1975 (end of 6th grade) when my family moved to California. Especially loved the class pictures from the 70s- brought back memories of many old friends!

Nice pictures of the White Horse Fire. Too bad it
was an arson fire by several Milford Residents.
