Eighteenth century Milton was an important industrial site, home to an iron slitting mill, paper and sawmills and New England's first chocolate factory, established in 1764. In 1800, Benjamin Crahore began making pianos in what is thought to be the first piano factory in the country, and in 1809 the first public health drive in the country was held in Milton to inoculate residents against smallpox.

Milton is currently home to newly constructed state-of-the-art public schools as well as Milton Academy and Fontbonne Academy.
