The Milton House located in Milton, Wisconsin is one of the most historic houses in the United States. It is also famously known as Joseph Goodrich House and Cabin. This house was believed to have been one of the stops for slaves who are using the Underground Railroad, an informal means of escape for slaves.

It was Joseph Goodrich a known anti-slavery advocate who had the Milton House Inn built. He strategically has it constructed in an area near a frequently traveled stagecoach line. This made this an easy access and stop point for many travelers and slaves escapees. A small cabin nearby is accessible using a tunnel, which is believed to hide runaway slaves.

The Milton Historical Society acquired the house in 1937 to have it restored to its original appearance. Later on in 1998 the Milton House was listed as part of the National Historic Landmark. It is open to the public as a museum.
