Relocating to Milford Utah
Milford was originally a railroad and mining community settled back in 1873. First settlers took up homesteads between 1875 and 1880. The town got its name from the crossing of the Beaver River by freighters in the term Mill Ford was shortened to Milford. At its beginning, Milford was kind of a rough place with saloons and entertainment near the mines for workers to relax after a long hard days work. However, it slowly grew to comprise people from all walks of life and all religions. The Union Pacific Railroad came to Milford and it is one of the mainstays of life today. It runs north and south through the center of the county at Milford and is a vital part of moving goods and natural resources to and from the state of Utah.
