Milford Township Home >
Milford Township was organized in 1858, as one of Brown County’s first townships. The first settler was Edward McCole, who came in 1853. The next settlers were the members of the Chicago Land Company in late 1854. The name Milford was derived from the sawmill built by the German Land Society settlers in 1854-1855 that was located near a ford over a creek. The county’s first post office was located at Milford, with postmaster Anton Kaus. However, the office was moved to New Ulm in 1857. Another post office opened in 1860, and Anton Henle was appointed postmaster.
