Milan, Town of

Milan has something for everyone

Located between New York City and the Berkshires, Milan (pronounced MY-lon) is a rural community situated near the Hudson River. With less than 3,000 residents, Milan is the least populated town in Dutchess County but it offers a big dose serenity and space. Milan offers characteristics that attract people who want small-town charm and the freedom from the congestion and high cost of living associated with more densely populated places.

Even so, a handful of other, larger, towns are within two miles or so Milan, including Red Hook, Pine Plains, Gallatin, and Rhinebeck, the site of Northern Dutchess Hospital that serves Milan’s community. Bigger metropolitan areas are within easy access from Milan via public and private transportation.

Of Milan’s notable family amenities is Wilcox Memorial Park, the former estate of Mrs. Frederick Wilcox with all its original 18th century outbuildings still in place. Among the park’s 600-plus acres are lakes, hiking trails, cross-country skiing, fishing, swimming, boating—with paddle and row boats for rent—camping sites, a beach and golf course. Another favorite is Morehouse Farm that participates in many Hudson Valley festivals and is known for its Merino sheep, on-site tours, knitting kits and tutorials, plus handmade wearable items.

Nearby are the Kingston Artists Collective & Café in Kingston and the Dutch Ale House in Saugerties. Also close are farmers markets in Red Hook and Rhinebeck, where live music, crafts and supplies, delicious breads and pastries are offered.

Most of Milan’s residents are in their mid-40s, with the median household income at about $79, 000 and median home values at $280,000.
