The name for MIlford was probably due to its location near a shallow water crossing of the Souhegan River which was near a mill known as the Mill Ford. The original name had two L's, but someone accidentally wrote Milford with one L on the outside of the charter and the name was set as Milford with one L. Milford was incorporated in 1794. The statistics on this page are for the Milford Town Center, a CDP, or Census Designated Place, by the US Census Bureau. Some of the information may apply to the large Town of Milford.
