Overview of Milford

If you are looking for the quaint New England lifestyle that makes the region so famous, a move to Milford, Mass., might be perfect for you and your family. This charming town is conveniently located on I-495, close to Boston, Providence and Worcester. But those who seek Milford apartments for rent will enjoy a quiet environment that is perfect for raising a family.

Living in Milford, MA

Like most of Massachusetts, the area that is now Milford was inhabited by Native Americans and European settlers centuries before the United States even came to be. The 8-mile tract of land that is now Milford was first settled by Europeans in 1662, when they bought it from the Nipmuck Indians. Although the King Philip War destroyed much of the establishments in 1676, the area was rebuilt and continued to grow throughout the next three centuries, becoming known for its famous Milford pink granite. Residents can see this stunning natural resource used in the town itself, but it was also shipped across the nation and globe for buildings in New York, Ohio and Paris, France.

Today, the 27,999 people who call Milford home enjoy a quintessential New England atmosphere with a historic downtown district, access to a range of outdoor activities and high quality schools for their children.

Milford Work and Study

There are a number of employment opportunities across the Milford area, which comprises 10 independent towns. Because of the town's location near the interstate, commuting to nearby cities such as Boston, Worcester or Providence is also easy. The interstate has also promoted economic growth within the town, allowing major retailers such as Kmart, Target, Kohl's, Lowe's and Sports Authority to open there.

The Milford Public School system comprises seven schools for students in  preschool through high school. Although there are no opportunities for higher education within the town itself, its location near other regional metropolises may make it an attractive option for students to live as well.

Rentals in Milford, MA and Cost of Living

Between 2008 and 2010, the median gross rent in Milford was $1,042, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, making Milford apartments an affordable option compared with nearby cities.

Milford Attractions and Special Events

Milford's location in Central Massachusetts makes it a perfect place to enjoy the glory of all four seasons. Residents may enjoy hiking the Milford Upper Charles Trail, which was the first to open a complete 5.7 miles of a 20-mile proposed trail that will span Milford and nearby Ashland, Sherborn, Holliston and Hopkinton. The Friends of the Milford Upper Charles Trail is a nonprofit group that also maintains a number of other trails in the area for the enjoyment of residents and visitors.

Those who would prefer to stay in the town center can enjoy a number of shopping and dining options in the revitalized downtown or the active Cultural Center. Many destinations in this town are within a 10-minute walk from nearly all Milford rentals, making it an easy and pleasant place to go out exploring. The town has a walking tour map that leads interested parties to natural and historical landmarks, such as Louisa Lake, Clark's Island Bicentennial Park, the Armory (constructed using Milford pink granite) and Memorial Hall, a structure built in 1884 that stands as a living memorial to Civil War veterans.

Milford also has a rich music scene. School bands, brass, rock and orchestra music have all been part of the town's history, and outdoor concerts are still a tradition at Town Park.
