New Milford is a film friendly town with diverse landscapes and population. From our lively town center and industrial sites to rural countryside and accessible wild areas, New Milford offers a wide range of picturesque settings. The town is medium-sized, approx. 27,121 at the 2000 census, with families, young professionals and an active senior community. We also boast many fraternal and cultural organizations and have a high rate of volunteerism as well as an active Chamber of Commerce -- you can always find someone to lend a hand in New Milford. Talk to any member of the Commission about your next project.
