Middleton has become a thriving and vibrant community that is a vital commercial and business center as well as the home of approximately 17,000 residents.
In 1963, Middleton became a city, and the foundation for modernization and progress was created. In the 1980s, the grain elevators and other blighted remnants of the old railroad days were replaced with a downtown renovation project.
Approximately 25 percent of the land within the city limits is open space, which includes 22 parks and 25 conservancy areas encompassing 1,100 acres.The quality of life in Middleton, often called the Good Neighbor City, was nationally recognized in 2005 when Money® magazine named it the seventh of ''The 100 Best Places to Live'' in the U.S.A.
Although the national acclaim is appreciated, it must be shared. Middleton owes much of its recent success to the pioneers of the past who worked together and overcame numerous hardships to create a community with constantly expanding potential and a consistently bright future.
