Welcome to Milton!
The city of Milton, formerly known as Scratch Ankle, due to its propensity to grow briars, was also known as Milltown, because it had the greatest mill in the area. The community, officially incorporated in 1844, was also called “Scottman’s Anchorage” because of the lumber barges that used to traverse the Blackwater River. The community is the county seat of Santa Rosa County, which was established in 1842 and named after Santa Rosa Island, Florida.
