|About Milford Township|
Milford Township is the northwestern cornerstone of Bucks County in southeastern Pennsylvania. Having been laid out by William Penn as his Bucks County "Dutch Township", it is steeped in the history of the early United States.
But long before the arrival of Europeans, the Lenape were stewards of the land with the Unami clan giving its name to the watershed that is essentially Milford.
Being in the Piedmont Plateau of the eastern United States, between the Atlantic Coastal Plain and the Appalachian Mountains, Milford enjoys a temperate climate with four marked seasons. Deciduous forests predominate with considerable upland wetlands that led to the region's historical designation as the "Great Swamp"
Milford Township is connected to the adjacent Lehigh Valley (Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton) and the nearby Philadelphia metropolitan area by the Pennsylvania turnpike and the Rt. 309 corridor while Rt. 663 provides the main link to Quakertown, Pennsburg and westward toward Reading.
With a balance of protected natural features and substantial human infrastructure, Milford is a tremendous community of caring and productive people.
