Milford s a thriving, historical village located in Oakland County in the southeastern portion of Michigans Lower Peninsula. The 2.5 square mile village has a population of approximately 6,300 residents. It is easily accessible from both M-59 and I-96. Full of small town charm, Milford boasts six parks within the citys boundaries. Central Park is located on the banks of the Huron River and offers a playscape for children, tennis courts, volleyball court, basketball courts and an ice rink. Fairgrounds Park is adjacent to the Senior Center and has picnic areas and shuffleboard courts, while Hubbell Pond Park is the site of the new YMCA and library. There are also plans for a fishing pier, canoe launch and trail system inside Hubbell Pond Park. Milford was originally settled by Levi Pettibone in 1827 and a post office opened in 1836 with Hibbard Tavern Aaron Phelps being the first postmaster. The village was officially organized in 1869, and today, Milford retains its original Victorian style architecture in its beautiful downtown buildings. The town of Milford is well known for its winter celebration when local merchants produce unique ice sculptures along the main streets of town outside their shops.

Milford Weather & Climate

The Southeast Lower region of Michigan has four seasons and due to its location near Lake Huron and Lake Ontario, it does experience lake effect, such as increased cloudiness during late fall and early winter. Summer precipitation comes in the form of showers and thunderstorms. The Great Lakes also act as a giant "heat sink," which helps moderate the temperatures of the surrounding land, cooling summers and warming winters. It is also a natural humidifier, and this causes an increase in the moisture content in the air, creating heavier snowfalls in the winter. However, seldom are there prolonged periods of extreme heat combined with humidity in southeastern Michigan. Average annual snowfall is 36 inches, but varies greatly from year to year. Michigan is on the fringe of the Midwest tornado belt, but sees less of this activity than other parts of the country.
