State releases easy peasy list of COVID-19 testing sites; asks public to test

As the fastest growing city in Delaware, Milford thrives on entrepreneurial spirit and growth in all aspects of life including commerce, culture and community. Known throughout the state as River Town, Art Town, Home Town, Milford celebrates the beauty of their natural resources, the ingenuity of its people and their commitment to quality of life. Downtown Milford’s crown jewel is the Mispillion Riverwalk, a greenway space designed to preserve the town’s waterfront. Along this walk were once located seven shipyards that produced over 600 wooden sailing ships between 1680 and 1927.

As a diverse, culturally-motivated community, the active Downtown emphasizes visual, performing and culinary arts. Featuring upmarket boutiques, art galleries and restaurants, Walnut Street in downtown Milford has been named one of the top 10 Great Streets in the United States by the American Planning Association.

Downtown Milford Inc. (DMI), a National Main Street organization, helps preserve the area’s rich historic heritage and bring new life and purpose to it. DMI focuses on:

  • developing the area’s infrastructure through projects such as the Downtown Streetscape Program and the Mispillion Riverwalk
  • improving the quality of downtown real estate through programs such as our matching grant program for structural and facade improvements;
  • attracting and supporting businesses which can make the most productive use of the downtown real estate, for example through our revolving small business loan program;
  • organizing and supporting community events in the downtown area such as Saturday Farmers’ Market, Bug & Bud Festival, Holiday Stroll, and Santa’s House.
