Uptown and Over South Exhibit

The Black History Society, a group dedicated to the chronicling of the history of the African-American citizens of Milford and its surrounding area, is sponsoring an exhibit entitled: "Uptown and Over South" in conjunction with The Milford Historical Society and the Milford Museum.

The exhibit currently consists of photographs of Uptown citizens and their daily lives along with churches, schools, businesses, social activities, sports, etc. The centerpiece of the exhibit is a trombone belonging to a locally famous musician and member of a noted African-American marching band known during the early to mid 1900's as "The Orange Blossom Band". Along with the trombone, a thumb nail history is provided.

A photographic collage DVD entitled "Uptown and Over South" is available for viewing which includes touching photographs of Uptown citizens set to provocative music. All are invited to rediscover this small glimpse of local history.

For further information, please contact the Milford Museum at 302-424-1080.
