Town of Milton



About Us

Milton was incorporated in northeast Caswell County, North Carolina, in 1796, as a center for warehousing and for the inspections of tobacco and flour.By 1810 the young town had two stores, a saddler's shop, a hatter's shop, a tavern, and 15-20 homes. Warehouses were constructed, Thomas Day had a successful cabinetry business, and around 1825, a two-story twenty-room hotel began operating.
