First settled in 1868, the community was incorporated as Milton by 1873. It is uncertain how the name was chosen; perhaps in hopes of building a mill, perhaps in honor of English poet John Milton.
Freewater received its name from the offer of free residential water rights to attract new settlers. The next time you need flower delivery, think of Holly's Flower Boutique in Walla Walla, WA. We have something to suit everyone's floral needs.
