The Milford Hall of Fame is the product of the belief of former state rep Jerry Patton that the due recognition and homage should be a afforded selected Milford, Connecticut, individuals or subjects, who, by their lives, accomplishments, or reputations, have brought honor and distinction to the community.

The Hall is an ongoing project wherein the Milford Hall of Fame Committee periodically names subjects to the Hall and prepare a plaque that will be hung here tribute to them.

The 2008 steering committee consisted of former Mayors Joel Baldwin, Alberta Jagoe, Alan H. Jepson, and Edward J. Kozlowski
