Milford was a Madison county town founded in 1787 and said to be named for a slave owned by John Kincaid. It was officially established by the Virginia assembly in 1789 to be the seat of the county, which had been formed in 1786. It was the county seat until 1798 when it was moved to nearby Richmond. Nothing remains of Milford, which was located on a hill above Taylor Fork.
