Old Hubbard Trail

— Dixie Highway —

This tablet, erected in the Spring of 1936, marks the Old Hubbard Trail, which forded Sugar Creek at this point. In this angle of ground between the ford and the trail there stood 100 years ago a pioneer grist mill. Thus giving the name the Mill Ford. From these two words and from this plot of ground grew the name and the present village of Milford.
