MILANO, TEXAS: A History 1873-1965

In this sketch on "MILANO" I have tried with the assistance of friends to list as many of the Old Settlers and their children at Milano and surrounding communities that could be remembered.

Milano was first located one mile west of the present town site.

We have listed a few places of business there and have tried to bring it up to the present time.

I am indebted to my many friends who have helped me in this work and I want to thank every one. I hesitate to mention them by name lest I omit one. So I will say Thanks to All.
