The Milford Stamp or A.G. Campbell Mill, was erected in the Fall of 1873, at a cost of $45,000. It was designed to work the ores of the Hickory Mine. In 1873-74 the mill ran successfully for five months. They used a 60-horsepower engine, two horizontal boilers, a Dodge rock crusher, wooden pans, iron settlers and a retort. Freighters bringing ore from the east mountains had to ford the river, hence the name Milford. Arvin M. Stoddard was the first settler.
