Milton, Florida, was founded in 1844 under the Florida Territorial Acts of 1844. Milton is the county seat of Santa Rosa county, and prides itself on its large variety of outdoor activities. Downtown sits on the banks of the Blackwater River, and the vista of early 1900s buildings overlooking the water is the iconic image of the town. Canoeing, kayaking, and innertubing are available on the rivers just north of town, beaches are located to the south, and a local rails-to-trails project has created an impressive, 14-mile (22-km) bike path beginning in downtown Milton.
A massive fire destroyed large parts of downtown on January 6, 2009. This fire destroyed the historic Imogene Theater and the Mudd Pitt coffee shop, among other buildings.
