Promont/GMAHS named Best of the East 2020!

Thank you to everyone who voted for Promont as Best Historical Site/Museum in the East!! We certainly couldn’t claim “The Best” without all of the amazing support our community shows us in the giving of their time, money, and recommendations to others. We had such a great time at the Best of the East event with many friends and fellow Milford businesses in attendance, and nominated, themselves. We would like to congratulate All of our neighbors who can now boast they are the Best of the East!

Please come on up to Promont on Sundays, from 1-4pm, to learn why we are named the Best Historical Site/Museum in the East and also to visit our newly remodeled gift shop filled with treasures, trinkets, and local history! We’ll see you soon!
