This town calls itself “Delaware’s Smallest Wonder” and is a classic example of life in a small historic town. There is an extensive Victorian home district, shops and dining in relatively rural area. Milton´s history is written in its streets, its architecture, its relationship to the Broadkill River, its industrial heritage, and its image and reputation throughout Delaware and beyond. Beginning in 1675, English planters began settling in the area, following earlier Dutch settlement in Lewes. The beginnings of the Town itself reached back to the early 18th century lumbering, mill and shipbuilding activities at the head of the Broadkill River. Today, Milton serves as the home of the ever growing and popular Dogfish Head Brewery.

Many affordable homes can be found in or near the town. The downtown includes many Victorian and restored older homes. New homes and communities are popping up frequently in this area.  Just minutes to the beaches, Milton can be an ideal location for those looking for a quiet area that is close to all the fun at the beaches.
