Located at the head of the Broadkill River, Milton was first settled in 1672 by English Colonists. The town was known by various names until 1807, when it was named for the English poet, John Milton. The Delaware General Assembly passed the charter that recognized The Town of Milton as a municipality in 1945. History and Milton’s shipbuilding heritage remain very important to the town, which is home to some of the finest Victorian and Colonial architecture in Delaware. Many of the homes have been restored to their original form, particularly those on Union and Federal streets. Milton has 198 structures on the Federal Register Historic District and its history is preserved in the Lydia Black Cannon Museum, the Governor James Carey home, the Chestnut Street Cemetery, and the Governor David Hazzard Mansion. The Hazzard House, and Gov. James Ponder House were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. The Milton Historic District was added in 1982. Today, Milton serves local residents and summer tourists in the Milton, Broadkill Beach and Primehook Beach areas with family operated businesses and new office and shopping complexes. Several local businesses in the area are served by the Delaware Coast Line Railway which operates a branch that extends to Milton from Ellendale.

Mr. Cullin spent days with me and showed me 35 homes in a month. He was patient as I had change my requirements a few times and I went back to a few homes to get measurements and to look at the neighborhood. He was very good at eliminating homes that I wasn't interested in based on my previous discussions and comments from looking at homes. He was readily accessible and knew the value of the homes, regardless of the asking price. He was not pushy nor critical but always fair minded and considerate of my time and my pocketbook. (less)
