It might seem puzzling that the borough is just celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2022. This presentation explores why there's a 245-year gap between two of New Milford's most significant dates: its birthday, June 8, 1677, and its anniversary of incorporation, April 18, 1922. It also highlights the people and events that shaped its unique history.
Nancy Varettoni is Chair of the New Milford Historic Preservation Commission.
