History

The town of Milton got its name from the English poet John Milton. Originally the small settlement was home to about 100 people. One of the original settlers there, Jasper Martin built grist mill along the creek which created a pond known as Mill Pond. This mill became the centre of the settlement as more people arrived to make Milton their home.

Preserving the town’s Niagara Escarpment lands has increased the desire for heritage conservation. A large number of historic agricultural buildings and the railway museum are located in Milton to preserve the history and culture of the area.
