Milton is a stately residential suburb located just eight miles south of Boston and accessible to the city by MBTA subway, bus, and the commuter rail. Its proximity to downtown businesses makes it an ideal homebase for commuters. The town has a high-achieving public school system as well as the prestigious Milton Academy and Curry College.
The area was originally inhabited by the Neponset Indians. It was acquired along with the towns of Canton, Stoughton, Foxboro and Sharon as part of a purchase made by the town of Dorchester from the Native Americans in 1636. Milton was incorporated as a separate town in 1662.
Mills sprang up along the Neponset River in the 18th century and the town operated the first water-powered grist mill, paper mill and chocolate mill in New England. Granite cutting and shipbuilding flourished in the late 1700s and early 1800s, but with the arrival of the railroad in 1849, Milton became mostly a residential suburb.
The town is home to the Blue Hills Reservation and ski area, which offers 7,000 aces of parkland, forests, ponds, hiking trails and bridle paths, as well as the Blue Hills Trailside Museum, and the recently expanded Milton Hospital.
Milton, which was the birthplace of President George Herbert Walker Bush and home to many early governors and statesmen, has a rich history, and much of its architecture reflects its past. Large Antique Colonial and Victorian homes and estates sit regally on rolling hills and valleys. The town is close enough to the city to be a streetcar suburb but it has all the beauty and allure of a country refuge. The community borders two Boston neighborhoods - Dorchester and Hyde Park, and the towns of Quincy, Randolph and Canton.
