History & History Related Items

Milford history:

Arvin Stoddard built the first house in this area in 1880. Around the same time, others were scouring the nearby hills for ore deposits and gold. Besides mining, cattle-raising was a major part of the history of the area. Many ranches were developed in outlying areas from Milford, one of the largest being the Pike Springs Ranch. During this time period in the late 1800's, Milford also was a terminal for the Southern Utah Railroad. The cattle industry relied heavily on the railroad to ship their products. It was also important as a supply line for the local mines. Once the mines were closed, the agriculture and cattle ranches of the area helped Milford retain its prosperity. The Union Pacific Railroad runs north-south through Milford making the city an important link in interstate commerce.

The city's name came from the miners who had to cross the Beaver River to and from the mines. They called it Mill Ford, but it was later shortened to Milford.
The incorporation date of Milford: 30 November 1903
