The most important role the Milton Historical Society plays in the town is management of four centuries of documents in our archives at the Milton Public Library. You can browse and search the inventory on our Archives page here on our website. There are even a few items digitized in one fashion or another, and links will show up in your search results which you can click on to see those documents. The volume of our archives means that only a tiny percentage will be available digitally.
