Milford group tries to stop proposed apt. complex

The fight is on in Milford where residents are trying to keep a real estate development firm from building an apartment complex next to an historic graveyard.

The group, Milford?s History Matters, says there may be bodies buried where the developer, Smith Craft, wants to build. The group also says the complex would destroy the atmosphere of the area.

The city?s historian says the bodies may be buried over the property line, but neither the owner of the land nor Smith Craft will let the state archaeologist on the land to investigate.
