Milton was known by various names during its development. Most notable were "Hell-Town" (muggy, inhospitable land covered with briars, mosquitoes, thorns, snakes) "Jernigan's Landing", "Scratch Ankle" (due to the briars that grew along the riverbank), "Hard Scrabble", and later Milton (possibly Homage to the Epic Poem novelist John Milton) and/or because of the local lumber mill industry or Mill Town, which was shortened to Milton.

Milton is a typical small town in that it is very friendly. Folks are quite helpful to Senior Citizens. There is NO public transportation, however. They are proud of their history and a lot of local organizations are centered around that fact. There are quite a few nursing facilities and the medical care is excellent.

Generally, the Pace/Milton/Pensacola area jobs are geared to younger folks. Transportation is limited. My wife and I share a car and are forced to find jobs close to home. Both our jobs (hers and mine) are strenuous and physically demanding, with not much consideration and acomadation for physical limitations and tasks demanded of us. Fortunately, the cost of living in Milton is fairly reasonable.
