Town #15: MILFORD est. 1880

Keep traveling south from Deseret, and eventually you will run into Milford. Milford is surprisingly bigger than you would expect out here in the middle of nowhere. It is home to more than 1000 people. For awhile, it was the southernmost end of the railroad. The town serviced the mining and livestock in the area. The Union Pacific is still a big employer in town. It is nice to see a old railroad town that is still viable.

In town, the visitor information is housed in this old caboose sitting in the middle of a park. The kids liked going inside.
