Milton has always been an industrial center. It was for this reason that it was located where the river penetrated deeply into an area rich in agriculture and timber. Successors to the original granaries continue to do business in the southside industrial area, along with a trucking company, a lumber company and a sign company. These have been joined by a successful plastics company that relocated to Milton from Long Island. All in all, it is estimated that there are some 550 jobs of all kinds in Milton.
The historic Town Center remains the civic center, and has welcomed new office and commercial uses suited to its central location, pedestrian scale and historic ambiance. These include antique, gift and specially stores oriented to bayshore visitors and professional or service uses such as an investment counseling office of Federal Street. Just as Milton´s commercial land use patterns were once shaped by shipping on the Broadkill, and later by railroading on the Queen Anne´s Railway, today they are being influenced by the area´s arterial roadways, and by new division of labor between the historic Town Center and more highway-oriented uses along Route 16.
