Milton is a small, quiet town that is slowly attracting more and more businesses to settle in. For a small town, it has much appeal, including the Milton Flea Market, Blenko Glass, and the annual Pumpkin Festival.

Great fall(pumpkin) festival, lost some community closeness with consolidation of high school. Community is growing and becoming hub between Huntington and Charleston.
Milton has the best pizza place in the world named Gino's Pizza. I would like to see a change in the speed limit while entering Milton. You're entering Milton at 50 mph and you have to drop down to 40 mph when your in Milton.
