Long Description:
It is unclear whether this congregation is still active. A Texas Historical Marker here provides some background:

Organized in June 1855 with 16 members, as one of 4 Presbyterian churches within a radius of 500 miles. Early, horseback-traveling pastors organized and served 3 churches in outlying areas.

Congregation built houses of worship in 1860, 1896, 1921. This church was 4 times host to the Presbytery, 1861-71; to Synod, 1920.

Records show Milford has been self-sustaining, faithful to support Presbyterian colleges of Texas, and high in benevolences.

Church bell, cast in New York, and brought here by ship, rail and ox-wagon, has called area to worship since 1871.
Year of construction: 1921
