Milford Borough History

The Borough of Milford, New Jersey, is an eco-tourism destination located along the banks of the Delaware River, known for the Milford Bluffs; bed races at Milford Alive, the Halloween Parade, and Christmas in Milford, complete with Santa and the local train. Fun for everyone!

The Borough of Milford, New Jersey, was incorporated on April 15, 1911, from portions of Holland Township covering a total area of 1.27 square miles and borders the municipalities of Alexandria Township and Holland Township in Hunterdon County; and Bridgeton Township in Bucks County, Pennsylvania across the Delaware River in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We are represented by the 7th Congressional District, part of New Jersey's 23rd state legislative district.
