Milton, located in the Florida Panhandle, is a laid back community nestled in a gorgeous rural setting of secluded forests, pristine waterways and gently rolling farmland. If you like the idea of spacious country living, peaceful walks under an ancient tree canopy, and abundant opportunities for recreation and entertainment, then you’ll love calling Milton, home! The lifestyle here is more “old Florida” – immersed in nature and shaped by water, including the Gulf of Mexico, the Yellow River, the East River and the Blackwater River. Dubbed the “Canoe Capital of Florida,” the Blackwater River State Forest has become the center of ecotourism in the region, attracting nature lovers and adventure seekers both near and far.
Milton was settled in the early 1800s as a small village centered on the lumber industry. The settlement was originally known as "Scratch Ankle", because of the briars and bramble that grew in the area. By 1839, it was being referred to as “Milltown". Milton was incorporated as a city in 1844, one year before the Territory of Florida joined the United States as the 27th state.

In addition, the Blackwater River is a designated Outstanding Florida Water, a waterway worthy of special protection, because of its natural and rare attributes.
