Milton Community Resources Scroll Down to Begin

Milton was settled in 1640 by Puritans who began the settlement of Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1630. Originally part of Dorchester, Milton was incorporated as an independent town in 1662. Milton thrived with industrial activity along the Neponset River at Milton Village; it included a gristmill, a gunpowder mill, a paper mill, and a chocolate mill - all thought to be among the first of their kind in New England. After the Civil War, however, Milton's population began to rapidly increase due to the convenience of the Old Colony Railroad with access into Boston. The former railroad line is now a surface trolley connecting Milton residents to the MBTA's red line into South Station. Milton's easy accessibility to the city of Boston along with its beauty, parks, and mix of housing opportunities continue to be deciding factors for new residents.
