The Callahan family, together again

— It's been a dozen years since the last reunion of the Callahan family, so their recent get-together was a momentous occasion.

Six members of the family gathered here from Hershey, Pa., Rockport, Mass., and Grand Junction and Broomfield, Colo.

Why Milford?
The name "Callahan" has historic significance in Milford. Their family home, The Callahan House, circa 1820 — also known as the Jacob Helm House — was posted to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. It's located off Route 209 just south of Milford borough, near the Metz Ice House. The property around the house — about 2.5 acres, once was a bungalow colony called Glen Acres.

The Callahans visited Denim or Lace at the Upper Mill and agreed to pose for this photo before going their separate ways — until the next family reunion, of course.
