In 2009, the Main Street Historic District was formally designated by National Register of Historic Places. Townscape produced a history of Millerton and conducted a historical survey of all of the buildings within the Village of Millerton. Designation as a historic district with the National Register of Historic Places provides a focus for restoration, and gives property owners eligibility for tax incentives when restoring their properties. In addition, the historic designation provides a draw for tourism to the Village, creates educational opportunities in the local schools and community organizations, and qualifies the Village for specialized improvement grants.
