The City of Milton, the county seat of Santa Rosa County, is located near the center of this western Florida Panhandle county, adjacent to the Blackwater River. The City of Milton is among the oldest cities in Florida, incorporated in 1844 under the Florida Territorial Acts of 1844.

In the founding days, the Blackwater River served as the main transportation artery for timber, lumber, brick, naval stores and ship building industries.

historic milton 1The origin of the name Milton is uncertain, but may have been derived from “Milltown”, demonstrating the importance of the lumber industry in the area. The railroads came to town in the 1880’s bringing a new dimension to the commercial activities of the area.

As forests were cleared, farming became a major industry with cotton and peanuts becoming the staple crops. In the early part of the 20th Century, the City of Milton began providing many of the services and conveniences of larger cities.

As WWII approached, the trees were disappearing and the lumber industry began to decline. But war produced the need for Naval Aviators and the U.S. Navy built N.A.S. Whiting Field north of Milton. Over time, Whiting Field and its associated out lying fields, became the preeminent training facility for Naval Aviators and a vital part of this community.
