  A grave marker for Milford's first doctor, Jasper Gunn. 

Hey - do you like local history and/or halls of fame? The Milford Hall of Fame is holding its 2013 induction ceremony on Wednesday at 5 p.m. at the Parsons Center. A committee made up of all the ex-living mayors (Richetelli, Jepson, Jagoe, Baldwin, Kozlowski) selects the inductees (who are all, unfortunately, deceased). 

Would you like to know who they're adding to the HoF?

-Capt. Jehiel Bryan: Born in 1728 in Stamford, he served as a captain in the revolutionary war. He died in Milford in 1853.
