The Milford Historical Society, along with the Milford Library and historical groups and libraries from Highland Township, White Lake Township and Commence Township recently joined forces to create a group called the Huron Valley History Initiative. That group submitted a grant request to the the Clarke Historical Library. The Clarke Historical Library offers an annual award valued at $2,500 to create online access to a Michigan newspaper. The project is funded through the Robert and Susan Clarke Endowment, housed in the Clarke Historical Library of Central Michigan University.
