Milton sits south of the Ohio River, where boaters put their boats in at the Milton Boat Ramp for a fun time of fishing or boating. Campers line the river bank in the summer where several campgrounds are located. Be sure to come to Milton for a river camping experience.

The Milton-Madison Bridge Project has received numerous state and national engineering awards for innovation. Spanning nearly a half mile the truss of the Milton-Madison Bridge made history in April 2014 by being the longest bridge in North America and perhaps the world to be slid laterally into place. The new Bridge also has a Pedestrian Walkway connection Kentucky and Indiana which is enjoyed by many.

History of Milton

Milton, Kentucky has the distinction of being one of the oldest towns in the Commonwealth. It was established by the law of Virginia in 1789, three years before Kentucky became a state. The settlement has almost always been small with today's population at about 650 people. The town is located in Trimble County where the county seat is Bedford. Today, Milton is a sleepy little place that at one time boasted of several distilleries and breweries. The town, as the county, is now "dry".

In 1958, Milton was used in the opening and closing of the Hollywood film, "Some Came Running". All the major stars of the film, which was filmed in Madison, Indiana, came to Milton for the end of the film shot in Moffett Cemetery. Those stars were Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Shirley MacLaine, Martha Hyer, and Arthur Kennedy. Even though the scene was the burial of Miss MacLaine's character, she was on hand for the shooting.

Speaking of Hollywood, according to the Internet Movie Data Base, two other films were made at Moffett in Milton. They were "Distant Drums" in 1951 and "We Shall Return" in 1964.
