2022: Jacob Shook Pomeroy Historic Marker Unveiled at Shookville Cemetery
“1818: It’s a town. The good news in the March 6, 1818 NY State Legislature vote was that “we” won the exclusive right to the town name “Milan” in competitive lobbying. The bad news was, the boundaries did not include Stissing Mountain as requested. The boundaries of 1818 are, of course, just a legal construct. The celebration of the bicentennial of their creation is a good reason to look at the environment, dynamics and some of the people who lived within its 23,411 acres ~ from the time of the earliest people.” Bill Jeffway 2018 This Place Called Milan
