Milford Historical Society Programs for 2014

Well it's almost the end of 2013 and in a few months I will be working on Programs for 2015 (really???). A few of the 2013 Programs that stick out in my mind are: The Purple Gang, Railroad Depots and the MC Ghost hunters.  I hope you will enjoy the 2014 Programs as well.


Here are the Programs scheduled for the upcoming 2014 year: All Programs are on the third Thursday of the month.



Aug 27 - MHS Board of Directors meeting 7 PM at the Mary Jackson House


Sep 18th (Potluck)  Program -The Chelsea Jiffy Mix Story complete with free recipe books. (I have one and really is fun to use.) Come hear about how this Chelsea, Michigan company got started and see some of the memorabilia from its history, including the free Jiffy Mix Cook Book - no home should be without one.



Sep 20-21 - Milford Home Tour - Presented by the Milford Historical Society 11 Am until 5 PM both days
























































Sep 24 - MHS Board of Directors meeting 7 PM at the Mary Jackson House


Oct 16th (Milford Library, No Potluck)  Phyllis Barkey will speak on the famous downtown J. L. Hudson Building. She will bring with her a display case full of J. L. Hudson memorabilia and we are asking for everyone  to bring their favorite cherished item from Hudson's. Mine is a tin tea canister. Phyllis’ book about the downtown Hudson's eateries is in the works.


Oct 22 - MHS Board of Directors meeting 7 PM at the Mary Jackson House


Oct  24, - MHS is bringing into Milford the world pianist BOB MILNE!  

Bob Milne is considered to be the best ragtime/boogie-woogie pianist in

the world. He was filmed and documented for future generations in 2004

during three days of interviews at the Library of Congress, and was declared

a “National Treasure” at the conclusion.


Mr. Milne is an active “Musical Ambassador” for the United States Dept.

of State, and has performed numerous times in Japan, including the

Okinawan Islands and Hokkaido. He has also performed in this capacity for

members of the Swiss Parliament at the U.S. Embassy in Berne.

Mr. Milne plays worldwide every year. A comment often heard following one of his performances is, “unbelievable.” He teaches music history at various universities around the country, and is also the founder and director of the Frankenmuth Ragtime Festival in Michigan.

Bob Milne teaches music and music history at Florida/Atlantic University every winter for Lifelong Learning. His courses are among the most popular in the curriculum.

Tickets are available now at Acorn Farm, Main Street Art and the Milford Township Offices, as well as at the Milford Historical Museum. Seating for this concert is limited to 350 tickets.  The Performance will be held in the Historic Milford Presbyterian Church.  After the concert will be a ‘After Glow with Bob’ for an additional charge featuring your chance to have Bob Milne sit at your table, meet him and enjoy light snacks with non-alcoholic beverages. There are 35 “premier Seating tickets available that include the After Glow.


Nov 20th. (Fall Potluck)  Milford's own Joe Salvia will be telling his war and military stories after eating a delicious turkey dinner. Joe works tirelessly every year to make the Memorial Day Parade a success in Milford.
