ALBURTIS COLUMN Lock Ridge Historical Society meets Oct. 11

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 by PATRICIA PLOUFFE Special to The Press in Columns

I spent last week in New England visiting my older sister. It's a long ride up from here and for the third year in a row, rained most of the way. However, coming home the Lord and sunshine were with us. Autumn had arrived in full splendor. Color was everywhere, from palest yellow bushes to deep red of tall trees along the roads and highways. Cool brisk air was a welcome change after our steamy summer. Pumpkins, a few corn stalks and seasonal decorations reminded us Halloween was on its way.

Did you know? Upper and Lower Milford Townships were originally part of Bucks County in a larger territory called Milford Township.

In 1738, they were pulled out of Milford Township to become Upper Milford Township, the first township in Lehigh County.

In December 1852, they were made separate townships.

This information and more can be found in a pictorial history book recently released by the Upper Milford Township Historical Society.
