What’s So Great About Milford?

Originally published by Laraine Shape on September 29, 2014

Well for one thing, the lady behind the deli counter at Lehr’s meat market makes the most delicious turkey sandwich on fat white bread that I’ve ever tasted.

And for another, they have a city wide garage sale there every fall. This year it happens the weekend of October 10th – 12th and according to the official city website, “residents clean the clutter from their attics, drag out treasures from their garages and organize accumulations from their basement in anticipation of the City Wide Yard Sale.”

There are a lot of other great things about Milford but a friend of mine who lives there asked me not to tell you about them. She wants to keep Milford a secret…so I won’t say another word about it…except for the part about all the Sears houses it has. How could you not love a city that has so many Sears houses?

Here they are. There are probably more. And remember, if you happen to go there for lunch or something, don’t tell everybody how great it is.

Oct 1, 2014- Lara – Houses in shockingly original condition. No enclosed porches?! Even that Wexford–normally people enclose that side patio.
