For 12 or 13 years starting in 2000, the web site Milfordpictures.com collected some great pictures of our hometown.  One feature of the web site was a guestbook where people who visited could leave comments.  Though this is no longer an active guestbook, the information contained had so many entries and so many names and memories that we thought it would be a good piece of Milford History.  Enjoy!

Found an old bottle on my farm in Ohio that had the imprint C. A. Hayward & Sons, Milford NH. It is about the size and shape of a half pint creamery bottle. Any idea of what it might have contained?

I am enjoying the wonderful pics and postcards of Milford's history once again. May I make a suggestion about one of the captions? From picture 23, business & industry:
The Souhegan Cotton Mill. This building was deystroyed by fire in 1872. It was on the North side of the river below the stone damn along Souhegan St.
Beware of homonyms--there's a difference between dam and damn !

I have a friend who is moving to Florida. She wants to sell her vintage French & Heald Bedroom and kitchen sets including a buffet. Is there a site she should visit to help value/sell these items?

Hi.
I was born in Nashua in 1955 and lived in Milford
until I was 4 years old.
My family lived first on Summer Street
and then on Dearborn Street.
I was baptized at St. Patrick's Church.
My Dad (Charlie Frahme) was the manager
of the McClellen's 5c & 10c store for approx. 7 years.
My Mom (Dot Frahme)became active in some of
St Patrick's church groups.
Went back to Milford last week with my family (wife Cathy,
sons Cristian,15 and Tyler,11)
while celebrating my 50th birthday.
Went to Saturday Mass at St. Patrick's.
Sat behind a lady named Ann with an awesome singing voice!
Spoke with her after Mass. She mentioned a woman at church
named Evelyn who may have known my parents-didn't get
to speak with her.My parents later told me that
the head cashier at McClellen's was named Evelyn.
Same one??
If anyone remembers my parents, feel free to
e-mail them at: dotnchaz@webtv.net .
As I was 4 when we moved away (to NY) I don't remember much.
Names that I remember are the Glovers (neighborhood friends)
and Dr. Law (he delivered me.)
My entire family fell in love with Milford during
our short stay.
Retiring to Milford someday is not out of the question.

My great grandfather, William Chase Whitmarsh was born in Milford, New Hampshire to Elizabeth Ann Wright and William Faxon Whitmarsh January 1, 1855. His parents and other family left Milford about three years later moving to Denmark, Iowa. William Faxon Whitmarsh was born January 27, 1829 in Lyndeborough and died of malaria following the Civil War. He was in the Union Army and part of the occupation troops in Arkansas. He is buried in the National Cemetery in Little Rock, Arkansas.
When my great grandfather was 78 years old he traveled from Arkansas to New Hampshire on his bicycle to visit family with whom he kept in touch. He stayed for six months or so and on his way home, somewhere in Missouri he collapsed and his sons had to bring him home. He died two weeks later. Some day soon I want to visit Milford and see some of the old places he mentioned in the letters my grandmother saved.
Great site!

I'm doing a research project on the granite industry in
Milford - your pictures were very helpful and gave me some
perspective on what life looked like back then during the
era of the granite industry. Thank you!

My mistake. I indicated I came from Mont Vernon. Nope. Lived there in my childhood.
I now reside in Amherst, Massachusetts.

I enjoyed seeing your photos. My mothers family is from
Milford,NH and growing up I spent MANY times there.
My mother was Angelina Calderara married name of Quinno.
She used to work at the Milford Cabinet way back when.
She married my father in 1954 and moved to Woburn, MA.
I like keeping in touch with the town through relatives
and sites like this.
Thank you.
Beth Lynch
