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!

Very interesting photos. They brought back many pleasant memories - nostalgia time. I was born in Milford, NH and, during the late 40s and early 50's, attended Milford's Junior and Senior High Schools.

I recognized many of the people in Ed Romney's photos - were we ever so young looking? The photos of gone-by buildings are a real treasure - French & Healds, The White Elephant Shop, The Milford Inn, etc.

It is great that you have created this website. Thanks for your efforts.

I currently reside in Fort Washington, MD - a suburb SE of Washington, DC.

gift for the locals!! Thank you!!

Great site and content. Became aware through the Telegraph article last evening.

Suggestion and my pet peeve: When older photos are shown, it is always even more enjoyable when current occupant is identified. For example, the Hayward Farm photo. I think it is Agway, but am not postitive.

We've been in area since 1971. I wish I had taken before and after photos -- after construction, it is so hard to remember what was there.

Keep up the great work!!

Great! Well worth several tries to access photos today; interesting and impressive. Publicity = popularity must have slowed site. We're working (volunteers) on similar project in Hollis: old & new photos, written history, GPS'd sites, maps, documents, & sound files all linked. The time involved: variety of material & getting permissions of all property owners to be in this section of Hollis Town web site means we're not quite up & running yet. Many congrats to you on your site & its growing contribution. Also to Milford on its Main Street Award & achievements. Isn't it fun finding all these treasures? Relatives of Nevins and Monson may be interested in Sargent Museum's archeological study of 2nd Wm. Nevins homestead, still in Monson but E of Monson Ctr. - part of our survey; our two towns are connected!.

Great website!!! Th memories of growing up in Milford
during the 40s and 50s start to fade over the years.
The pictures help bring it all back. Keep up the good work.

Very interesting idea about advertising the past.
Born and raised in Nashua, NH but now retired and living in
San Diego, CA. Will be visiting relatives in Nashua this
summer, 2002, and plan on traveling around the area to see
what changes have been made in the area.

Wonderful to be able to see,on-line, the town in The USA,
where our daughter,and our two grand-daughters live.

They live about 200 yards from The Carey House, and we walk
past it when we walk into Milford, when we are over in America.

Her name is Jakki Garber. She lives at No.77 Union St.

We love your website. We moved here in 1999 and I have done
some research on our old house. It was built in 1854 and
is thought to be the Charles Weaver House. Today the
address is 37 Cottage Street. Do you have any pictures or
information on the McIntires Soap factory? It was located
on Cottage Street.
Thanks Deanne Carr

my husband and I are very interested in locating in the State of New Hampshire when we retire - it is our mutual dream to own and operate a bed and breakfast that would be easily accessible to the mountains (for skiing), water (fishing) and would have enough land to be able to allow ourselves and our guests to do some cross-country skiing, etc.
Thank you. Anne C. Charron

I had many distant relatives who lived in Milford. My great-great-grandfather was Jacob Flynn who was for many years a selectman on the town counsel in the late 1700's and early 1800's. I also have many Hutchinson relatives who lived there. One was Nathan Hutchinson, a very early resident, in fact one of the earliest when the town was Monson. I have been doing a lot of genealogy research in Hillsborough county as there were several families in which I am interested that lived in that county. I am also distantly related to the famous Hutchinson singers.

I think the Lone Pine is on the Mont Vernon Rd Rt 13. just above Hartshorns Pond. I have seen that card I think at the Mont Vernon Historical museum. We are only open in warm weather.

I am viewing your site because my daughter her husband and their two children just relocated there. They have found a place to rent in the mountains and hope to buy a house when they sell their place in Peoria, Illinois. I'm looking forward to visiting with them and seeing your area. From the web site and from what my daughter has told me, it sounds like a very beautiful place to raise a family. I live in Louisiana (Baton Rouge) and that is where my daughter and her husband grew up.
