Milford To Unveil Downtown County Line Photo Stop

The City of Milford and Downtown Milford, Inc. (DMI) will unveil a new #photostop in the heart of Downtown Milford – the Mispillion River, which splits the city into two counties – Kent and Sussex – on Saturday, May 21 at 11am. The public is invited to witness the unveiling. 

The new photo opportunity will be designated by two 60” plaques mounted to the brick flower planters in front of the Santa House/North Pole Creamery (1 S. Walnut St.). In time, the new Walnut Street bridge deck design will also incorporate a county line designation.

“Milford is unique in its geography – claiming both Kent and Sussex counties as home – and it’s time we finally capture the opportunity to be in two places at once,” said Sara Bluhm, City of Milford’s Economic Development & Community Engagement Administrator. “The city is thankful to DMI and its Design Committee for bringing this project to life!”

“This is another great project that highlights the beautiful Mispillion River,” said Janne Collins, Executive Director of Downtown Milford, Inc., “and the plaques give people a goal to reach in the downtown that will lead them to explore more of the charming town of Milford, DE!”

Funding for the signs was provided to DMI by WSFS Bank.
