Editorial note: Many of the articles donated by the Aubrey Morris estate are relevant today - both as well-researched chronicles of our history and as educational tools for Milton citizens. This article was first published in the Alpharetta-Roswell Revue & News on July 27, 2006 when the cities of Milton and Johns Creek were being formed. In the interest of space, Milton is reprised first, with Johns Creek history to follow in a subsequent newsletter.
