The Town of Milton Historian’s Office is dedicated to the motto "Preserving the Past—Collecting for the Future." Its primary concern is with the people of Milton and their pursuits and activities from earliest times through the present.
The collection of historical information and materials is arranged by:
- Churches and cemeteries
- Agriculture. business, industry
- Schools and civic organizations
- Pictures and maps
- Narrative materials
Anyone tracing ancestors and/or their location in Milton through the years may contact the Historian with a request for the particular information desired. Such requests need to include specific name(s) with date, place of birth, death, and marriage if known. Inquiries regarding local history in general may also be submitted. Requestes need to include return contact information and may be submitted by one of the following:

Postal Mail at Town of Milton Historian, 503 Geyser Road, Ballston Spa, New York, 12020

The public is welcome to come to the Historian's Office by scheduleing an appointment to review materials relative to request for information and also to reference the general local history materials that are available.
While most of the Historian’s Office activity involves preserving and sharing the past, the Office is equally interested in collecting recent and current information and materials to be available for the future. The Office is very much interested in collecting any information and pictures that would update and extend current records or establish new records that will be available to our younger generations as they seek to learn about family and Milton history in the years to come.
