The English also called the people the Delaware, after the river they named after one of their colonial leaders.Milford was founded in 1796 after the American Revolutionary War as a United States settlement on the Delaware River by Judge John Biddis, one of Pennsylvania's first four circuit judges. He named the settlement after his ancestral home in Wales.Milford has a large number of historical significant buildings, many constructed in the nineteenth century and early twentieth centuries.
