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!

old Milford pictures.just pictures and their description.what a great
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!!

What a great idea. I was born and raised in Milford and have nothing but the most fond memories of Milford. I grew up there in very safe times, in the 50's. I used to walk my baby sister to Jims Store every day after school. I'll never forget the penny candy section. My sister suggested that we put a picture of Lorden Lumber (my father and his brothers company) on line. We still have it. Dave Nichols and I live in the same town of Durham and only recently discovered it. I went to school with him. Thanks for the memories.

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.

seeking information on Charles S. Emerson and his brother Harry Emerson who it seems donated the land for Emerson Park in Milford, NH. I believe I am related to them and want to find birth and death dates and other vital stats.

Looking for local historians!
I have some furniture of my father's.
made by French & Heald, New Hampshire. maple.
I have read that the funiture co. burned down in 1891.
Did they re-build?The style of this furniture looks to be from the 50's.
Is this possible?

Hey Chris!
Your Milford website looks great. I like the new look. It's easier to get around in now. My son Dan has a friend in Tucson who wanted to see your website. Maybe you'll see more entries in your guestbook. Take care!!

Great site! Just bought the pictorial history book today and found the website info there.
I've lived in Milford since '94 and rented for a short time in a great antique brick home
on Amherst St. (used to be the Red Eye Tavern, so I'm told) I loved seeing all the photos
of the other old places - too bad so many of them were lost to fire or progress . Thanks
for sharing!

wonderful pics. that brought back some nice memories of an adventure my cousin and i had one saturday afternoon in milford in the late 50's. i was 5, he was 12. he was supposed to get his haircut but that never happened. we ended up being locked inside of the white elephant store while all th elocal and state cops were looking for us. after helping ourselves to whatever penny candy we felt like my cousin found a phone and finally called the cops to let them know we had been locked in. what a great place that was!! am also happy to have contributed the pictures i have of the fire at the white horse inn

The site is wonderful, I have loaded some pictures and post cards. I would be more than glad to contribute funds to help you defray costs of the site. I noticed that you said the cost might go up if you kept adding pictures. Keep up the good work.
