Milford is a borough in Pike County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 1,104 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Pike County. It is served by the Delaware Valley School District. Milford was the home of noted forester and conservationist Gifford Pinchot. A former Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, his home Grey Towers has been under the control of the U.S. Forest Service since 1963. It now serves as a training and educational center for future conservationalists and interested tourists. Milford served as setting for a number of silent films directed by D.W. Griffith in the early 1900s. Milford has been home to the Milford Science Fiction Writers Workshop since 1956, founded by Damon Knight, James Blish and Kate Wilhelm, all residents of Milford at the time. Milford is also home to Pike County Arts and Crafts, an arts education organization that was chosen by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts as winner of the 2007 Pennsylvania State "Creative Community Award.". Since 1950, Pike County Arts and Crafts has also hosted an annual art show each July in Borough Hall. An important American artifact is housed in the Pike County Historical Society Museum in Milford - the Lincoln Flag, which is the actual flag that had draped on President Abraham Lincoln's booth at Ford's Theatre the night he was shot. The flag was bundled up and placed under the President's head, and still bears his blood. The flag was kept by stage manager Thomas Gourlay, and eventually passed down to his daughter Jeannie, an actress who had been in the play, Our American Cousin, at the theatre that night; she moved to Milford and the flag was donated to the museum after her death. In September 2007, Frommer's Budget Travel named Milford, Pennsylvania, second on its list of "Ten Coolest Small Towns in America". According to the various welcome signs on the outskirts of the town Milford was founded between 1733 (route 206/209 north) and 1798 (route 6 south).

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Milford Pennsylvania

What is asbestos and mesothelioma litigation?

Mesothelioma is caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestos, once regarded as a miracle mineral, was popular due its lightweight but tough characteristics as well as for its heat-resistant properties. This naturally occurring mineral was used in many commercial and consumer products, from construction materials such as cement, roofing shingles and insulation, to consumer and industrial applications such as hair dryers, automobile brake pads and pipe insulation.

Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related cancer which forms in the lining of the chest or abdominal cavities on the mesothelium - the sac lining the internal body cavities. Mesothelioma cases involve those who have suffered adverse health effects from exposure to asbestos on the job, in consumer products, or in the environment.
