"If you believe in elbow grease and big dreams;

if you are passionate about your ideas and ready to start something awesome;

if you are looking for a place to begin or grow your business-

you belong here."       


The Milton Schoolhouse is constantly renovating to provide space for businesses in the riverfront area. We specialize in start ups- people who have grown their hobby out of the home and are looking to take the leap into their first commercial space. Many entrepreneurs use Milton as a launch pad, and find themselves relocating into other areas of the community once they've grown. Some businesses have decided to call Milton their permanent home. 


Massage at Milton

Bobbi Brooks has been a license massage therapist for over seven years and worked in a high end salon for most of that time. In the spring of 2013, she decided to branch out into her own space and begin her own business. Milton's core of volunteers worked together to build out, from scratch, the most beautiful and serene haven to showcase Bobbi's talents. Bobbi specializes in deep tissue and prenatal massage, but offers a variety of seasonal services to accommodate new and returning clients.

Carrie Carpunky Photography

Carrie Carpunky began working her photographic magic out of her in-laws basement- but soon found the demand for her talents imposing on their hospitality. As her business grew, she began looking for a studio that could accommodate her current needs but also give her room to grow. She established her studio in the Milton Schoolhouse in the summer of 2012- and has been delighting customers every since. Carrie is an endlessly sunny spirit whose joie de vivre splashes over into her incredible family photography. See her work and get in touch with Carrie here.  


Creative Stained Glass

Linda Kutter, owner and head artisan of Creative Stained Glass, decided to pursue her passion for this artistic media after retiring from many years of office work. Her studio grew out of her home, into another commercial location and, in early 2013, she relocated her business to The Milton Schoolhouse. Linda Kutter specializes in producing her own beautiful pieces, but she is also has a talent for custom orders and restorations. Linda hosts classes in her studio several times a week. She also has a magnificent selection of glass and other related tools available for artists and students to purchase.  Take a look at her class schedule and see what's going on in the studio here. 



Midwest Electric

Midwest Electric is owned and operated by Dan Mustain- a wonderful licensed electrician who relocated his offices to Milton in 2010.

He and his son Rusty have tackled most all of the electrical rewiring in Milton's massive structure during our renovation, and the quality of his work shines.
