Milton, Delaware, is located on the Broadkill River and many years ago it was a very important shipbuilding community. The river runs through this town.  The European settlers of the 17th and 18 centuries used this river as a means of transportation.


Many shipyards were eventually located in Milton.


Vaudeville was one of the most popular types of entertainment in North America from 1880’s until the early 1930’s.  The performances were separate, unrelated acts grouped together on a common bill.  It came to be called “the heart of American show business”.


The Milton Theatre is located in Downtown Historic Milton, at 110 Union St.  It was built in 1910 and it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Milton.  In the 1930’s it was this community’s art deco movie house, featuring silent films, and the “talkies”.


I first “discovered” this theatre in 2010.  Today, I think it is a beautiful gem.  It is the home of the Premiere Centre for The Arts.  Website?
