Our Hometown: Milford Premieres April 19 at 8pm

(Durham, April 13, 2018) - The town of Milford is featured in the newest episode of New Hampshire PBS' OUR HOMETOWN series.  This show features stories told by those who live in, love and know their town. OUR HOMETOWN: MILFORD delves into the history of this Hillsborough County town that is nicknamed "the Granite town in the Granite State."

Residents living in this bustling town that sits along the Souhegan river tell of Milford's history and daily life.  The show recounts stories about the first African American woman to publish a novel and the rich history of the local granite quarries. Even the Town Hall clock has a story to tell.

The stories generously shared for OUR HOMETOWN, shed light on Milford's past and present. While it was not possible to include all 40 stories in the 30-minute program, everyone's story will be showcased online at nhpbs.org/hometown, creating a historical archive of life in Milford.

Produced in partnership with each community, OUR HOMETOWN engages residents and businesses in telling their stories, which are then recorded and edited into a 30-minute television program for New Hampshire PBS. All stories, as well as the full program, are available at nhpbs.org/hometown. The series is hosted by New Hampshire author and storyteller, Rebecca Rule.

The OUR HOMETOWN series premiered in 2015 with a focus on Peterborough, followed by shows about Colebrook, Stratham and Wolfeboro. The series explores the vibrant culture, commerce, history and people of New Hampshire's towns and cities. Littleton will be the next stop in the series.

OUR HOMETOWN: MILFORD premieres Thursday, April 19 at 8 p.m. on NHPBS with multiple airdates on NHPBS and NHPBS EXPLORE and online at video.nhpbs.org
