The first settler in Milford Township arrived in 1866 and a large number of homesteaders arrived three years later. On Dec. 2, 1891, a petition signed by 58 residents was filed at the Clerk of District Court’s office. It called for a special election to organize a municipal corporation to be known as Milford. The city of Milford was incorporated with a vote on Jan. 11, 1892. The first meeting of the town council was held on March 14 of that year.
Milford’s population continues to see steady growth. Residents and guests enjoy numerous city parks (Buchanan, Calkins, Florence, and Memorial), great community facilities, a high-quality school system.

Faith Community Church of Milford was officially incorporated on May 23, 2018. In order to understand its conception, it is necessary to understand what came before.
Technically the new church in town, our roots go back to 1859 when the first Methodist preacher arrived in Dickinson County, eventually building the first church in Milford known as the Methodist Episcopal Church, and to 1872 when the first pastor from the Home Missionary Society of the Congregational Church was sent to Milford. These two churches joined and became the Federated Church, eventually evolving into Union Memorial Church, a joint United Methodist Church and United Church of Christ. Our history is that of evolution to meet changing needs.
In early summer of 2014 our church began to examine our ministry to our members and the world beyond our walls. We asked questions about our role in the community and in the lives of our members. There was discussion about what a church should be and should do: We asked ourselves if we were sufficiently reaching out to share the Word of God. With some regret at severing ties with part of our history, the majority of our members felt we could be more effective in our ministry by becoming an independent, non-denominational church and we moved forward to leave our two denominations.
The culmination of four years of prayer, analysis, discussion and exploration, Faith Community Church is an independent church with no denominational affiliation. Our vision is to minister to all God’s people with a loving spirit, reaching out to the community we are a part of, with hope based on faith.

The first library in Milford was started in “Old Town” by the settlers. In the year 1923-1924, the Milford Federated Women’s Club established a town library as one of their projects. Club members went from house to house and solicited books to start the new library. Lumber for the bookcases was donated and the shelves were built by a manual training class. A few years later, a state law was passed allowing towns to levy a tax for libraries, and ever since the town of Milford has maintained an excellent library. The early library was located in the town hall. In 1965, a new building was built at 1020 10th Street. Today, the library is part of the Milford Community Building at 1009 9th St., a project that was completed in the Spring of 1999.
