With a fabulous location just north of Pensacola, the City of Milton, Florida, is the “Canoe Capital” of the state and an outstanding place to spend a week, a season, or a lifetime. Multiple waterways flow through the town, specifically Sweetwater, Blackwater, and Coldwater, attracting tubers, rafters, and paddlers. Camping is also popular in the area. Milton is the county seat of Santa Rosa County and its downtown, which is situated on the banks of the Blackwater River, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated a Florida Main Street Community.
Milton is one of the state’s oldest cities, having been incorporated in 1844, and as a result, there are many points of historical interest here. Among them, you’ll find the L&N Train Depot, the 1912 Imogene Theater, and the Museum of Local History. In 1885 and 1892 three devastating fires destroyed the commercial sections of Milton, but in 1909 the worst of the three razed Town Hall and nearly every other structure within two blocks of downtown Milton. The old courthouse was one of the few buildings that remained, and today downtown Milton bears witness to the determined rebuilding that occurred in the years that followed. Today Milton is comprised of approximately five square miles and home to just under ten thousand people who enjoy the perfect balance it provides, of modern urban life and small-town charm.
The major industries in the area are farming, service, manufacturing, and military. The city also boasts many attractions including Historic Bagdad Village, Veteran’s Memorial Plaza, Gill-Bass Park, and Riverwalk Park. Furthermore, there are fantastic opportunities for entertainment, recreation, dining, and shopping in and around Milton. And making the city even more appealing, it has one of the country’s lowest costs of living. Also contributing to this growing city’s popularity is the diversity of Milton real estate. Real estate in Milton consists of duplexes, townhouses, vacant land upon which to build, investment properties, waterfront lots, and single-family homes in a variety of architectural styles. There are lakefront homes in Milton, many with private docks and spacious one-acre lots, canal homes with boat slips, and there are Milton waterfront homes with deep water access to the Gulf of Mexico. Because of the city’s age, there are historic properties and new construction in Milton, which includes some truly gorgeous custom homes. As a result of this extraordinary variety, listing prices for available Milton properties fall across an extensive range.
