History

English settlers purchased the land now known as Milford from Native Americans in 1639. They built a gristmill there the following year. Milford served as part of the primary route connecting Boston and New York during the Revolutionary War.

In subsequent centuries, the area grew to include farms, oyster harvesting operations and shipbuilding businesses. At the same time, Milford began to draw New Haven and Bridgeport residents on looking for a holiday at the beach. It was not long before enterprising individuals began building resort lodging, restaurants and shops appealing to tourists.

The New Milford Historical Society and Museum maintains permanent and temporary exhibits depicting the region's history. Walnut Beach hosts a number of annual events, including a Halloween Parade, summer concert series, Ice Cream 5K Run and Walnut Beach Arts Festival.

The family-owned New Town Market serves as both a convenience store and a top-rate delicatessen; it features standard grocery items along with gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan items.

Parks

Silver Sands State Park sits adjacent to Devon and Walnut Beach in Milford. The nearly 300-acre property consists of forest, restored salt marsh, beach, sand dunes and open areas. It features docks for swimmers and kayakers, trails and picnicking areas. Birders regularly visit the park thanks to the Charles Island bird sanctuary, which is part of the park. They are often in search of least and common terns, snowy owls, short-eared owls, rough-legged hawks and herons.

The state acquired land for the park after a hurricane destroyed 75 homes there in the 1950s. The foundations of some of these houses and cottages are visible in marshland at the park, particularly during low tides. The state also oversaw restoration of its coastal wetlands in the 1990s after soil analyses indicated the presence of pollutants, most likely residual from when the area was home to a landfill.

During low tides, visitors are able to walk across a sand ridge from the mainland portion of the park to Charles Island. In addition to hosting the bird sanctuary, the 14-acre island contains remnants of a Catholic retreat built in the 1920s.

The park is family-friendly. Dogs are permitted as long as they remain on leashes and are not allowed on the sandy beach. There is no fee to use the park.

The nearby city-owned Walnut Beach Park costs $5 per car from Memorial Day through Labor Day but is free to use the remainder of the year. A boardwalk beginning at the park connects to Silver Sands State Park. The boardwalk is three-quarters-of-a-mile long. The park's pavilion is available for rent by reservation.
