Milton Plantation lies with its northern line about
ono mile south of the Androscoggin, midway between the eastern and western limits of Oxford County. Rumford bounds
it on the north, Franklin Plantation on the east, Woodstock on the south, and Bethel on the west. The dimensions
are about five and a half miles east and west by two and two-third miles north and south. The surface is broken
and mountainous in the north-eastern and south-western parts, but more level, with some intervals along the courses
of the streams in other portions. The principal streams are Concord River, with Peterson Stream and its other branches.
In the north-eastern part are Glines and Peaked mountains, with Mount Zircon at the extreme angle, and Mount Hemingway
just across the northern border. In the south. west, Bryant Mountain is the chief eminence. On the western slope
of Mount Zircon is the noted Mount Zircon Mineral Spring.
