Lost Towns of Illinois - Milton, Illinois.

Milton was a former settlement in Brown County, Illinois. 

Lewis Gay and William C. Ralls laid out the town on McKee creek, four miles from the Illinois River, near the site of the old Johnson mill, on August 26, 1836. In advertising the sale of town lots, the promoters referred to it as "located at the head of slack water navigation."
