History

Milton is one of the most oldest cities in the state of Florida. It was incorporated under the Florida Territorial Acts of 1844. The Blackwater River, located near Milton, was the main transportation mode for the brick, lumber, naval stores, ship building and timber industries. However, the town's roots go back even further than 1844, when people started settling along the Blackwater River. If you want to stump the locals while looking at Milton real estate, ask them if they know why the town used to be referred to as "Scratch Ankle." (Answer: It is because of the brambles and briars located along the Blackwater River.)

Parks and Recreation

Those of you who want to see the Blackwater River while looking at Milton homes should visit one of the town's three riverside parks. At Russell Harbor Landing, Milton Riverwalk and Carpenter's Park, you and your family can hike, picnic, swim and boat to your heart's content. While you and your partner look at Milton homes for sale, your kids can have fun at the town's skate park.

Milton's Parks and Recreation Department has activities and events lined up for everyone in your family. If you buy one of our Milton properties, your son can join the town's youth football team while your daughter can join the cheerleading squad. If your parents live with you, they can go to movies, bingo, and ice cream socials at the Community Center.
