Antique Show and Sale
Milford NH Church Ushers in 53rd Year of Antique Show
The First Congregational Church of Milford, New Hampshire will hold its 53rd Annual Antique Show and Sale on Saturday, May 19th. Quality primitives, paper, glassware, and silver are among the items to be displayed and sold. The show will be held in the historic parish house on Union Street in Milford. Milford is a charming, historic mill town with great proximity to the Antique Trail on 1O1A. The funds raised at this show are vital to the church's work in the community.
