Milford Preservation Trust will be celebrating Halloween this year once again at the Minute Man House (John Downs House), 139 North Street, October 31st, from 4 PM to 7 PM.
Prizes will be awarded to children dressed in costumes depicting 18th or 19th century persons of American historical importance, such as (for example): George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Abraham Lincoln, Clara Barton, Harriet Tubman, Sitting Bull, Frederick Douglas, or Tecumseh.
However, all trick-or-treaters and their parents are welcome, and nobody need wear an historical costume to participate, receive Halloween candy, and join in all the fun!
Various historical artifacts, including a collection of Native American war clubs, will be on display, and several Milford Presentation Trust members will also be dressed in period costume and portraying various local historical figures.
So, Happy Halloween to all! And we hope to see all of you there!
