Downtown Milford Inc. in partnership with the City of Milford and WSFS revealed two new plaques located on the Walnut Street bridge that identify the dividing line between Kent and Sussex Counties. The new plaques are designed as a photo opportunity for those who come to downtown Milford.

“We are grateful that all of you are able to be with us today for the unveiling of our Kent and Sussex County plaques,” Janne Collins, DMI Executive Director, said. “These plaques give our city another opportunity to be the hub of activity here in Delaware as we show everyone how these two counties come together to do so many wonderful things. With the unveiling of these county plaques, we expect that this will be the spot where many people will come to join hands and take pictures that are the focal point of the special memories they have made in Milford Delaware, a great place to live, work and visit.” Collins thanked Laurie Cale, Retail Office Manager of WSFS for attending the event and for their partnership in making it happen.

Mayor Archie Campbell thanked council members for attending. Vice-Mayor Jason James, Councilwomen Katrina Wilson and Nirmala Samaroo as well as Councilmen Dan Marabello, Michael Boyle, Brian Baer and Todd Culotta were in attendance. Kent County Levy Court Commissioner Eric Buckson, Representative Charles Postles and Senator Dave Wilson were also at the unveiling.

“It’s really an honor to be here today to be part of this event,” Senator Wilson said. “You know the unveiling of these plaques here for downtown Milford. It is a great day for Milford. I have always said Milford was a town that was too big for one county so you couldn’t get everything that was going to happen in Milford in one county. That’s why we’re here today, to celebrate what happens in downtown Milford. What better place ot support the community and things that have happened in Milford in the last 20 years. There’s a great future in Milford and we want to be a part of it. We want to see this town succeed and be number one in the state, so no doubt about it, it is going to be!”

The plaques are visible on the brick planters in front of the Santa House which houses North Pole Creamery during the summer months.
