Learn how Milton has transformed over the last 350 years!
Originally an agrarian community in the 1700’s, Milton became a farming community with two industrial centers in Milton Village and Railway Village (now East Milton) in the 1800’s. Then the beginnings of suburbia appeared in the early 1900’s when wealthy Boston families maintained “in between” houses used only in the spring and the fall, which, after the Great Depression, were sold and subdivided. The land of these former estates became neighborhoods, built over the ensuing decades between WWII and the 1970’s. These attractive Colonial-style houses make up the Milton we know today. The talk is sponsored by the Milton Barber Shop.
Refreshments will be served at the reception after the lecture.
