Where is Milford, Massachusetts, USA? 

Milford, Worcester, Massachusetts, USA
...Captain Seth Chapin and Elder John Jones were the first to settle on land that was to become Milford. Our Main Street was called the Sherborn Road at that time. Many of the oldest homes are in the North Purchase and it was a great distance to travel to Mendon for Sunday worship in the First Congregational Church. The “Mill River” people, as Milfordians were named, petitioned to separate from Mendon and have their own town and Church. In 1741 they were granted the right to have the Second Congregational Church and be known as the “Easterly Precinct.” In 1780, Milford was incorporated and our Church became the First Congregational Church...milford.ma.us/ pages/ boards-committees/ historical-commission/ milford-history.php
