About Milford-Miami Township

Downtown Milford features unique shops and restaurants in a charming boutique setting

A Mill by the Ford

The Milford-Miami Township area was first settled in the late 1700s by names like McCormick and Gatch that you still hear around here today. From those early times in log cabins built near the mill by the ford on the Little Miami River (hence the name Mil-ford) to the quaint yet modern downtown you see today, our little region has continued to grow and develop over the past two centuries.

Explore. Purchase. Visit.

We encourage you to explore this site. During this time of “stay at home,” we have noted which businesses are currently open and which are selling gift cards. Our restaurants are worth the visit – and a drive on a beautiful day to pick up a meal from a new gem is a great way to change up your scenery.

And with our Designated Outdoor Recreation Area (DORA), you can enjoy a drink while you stroll the streets, window shopping and waiting for your carryout meal to be ready.

For those businesses that are not currently open – please learn about and support them through gift card purchases so they are able to remain in business. Plan a “virtual day out” – relax with massage or facial … savor a delicious meal … and thrill your shopping gene with delightful gifts. You can even plan a night in one of our charming Bed and Breakfasts. Whatever your interests, Milford-Miami Township businesses provide an outing to anticipate for when we are all out & about again!
