People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Milton, Massachusetts, USA? 

Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts, USA
Milton was settled in 1640 as part of Dorchester by a man named Max Carpenter. Referred to as "Unquity", the term used by the Neponset Tribe of the Massachusetts Indians meaning "Lower Falls," which was translated into "Lower Mills" after the establishment of the Stoughton Grist Mill in 1634. In 1662, "that part of the Town of Dorchester which is situated on the south side of the Neponsett River commonly called 'Unquatiquisset' was established as an independent town and named Milton in honor of Milton Abbey, Dorset, England."
