Milan may have the smallest population in all of Dutchess County, but it is not to be overlooked. The town holds strong to its small-town historic roots, with a beautiful greek-revival Town Hall and winding forest roads.
Located in the northernmost portion of Dutchess, the drive to Manhattan is about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Albany to the north is just an hour's drive.

Wilcox Memorial Park, for long hikes or a summer lunch by the lake.
Like most towns in the area, Milan's economy was centered on agriculture. Back in the 1840s, Milan boasted a thriving population of over 1700 spread across a half dozen hamlets.
