Arriving in Town

The little village is at the intersection of County Highways OT and ZN.


Initially called Midway Station, Midway originated in the 1870s as a station for the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad. The village got a post office in 1872, but it was closed in 1934. In 1881, the village boasted a blacksmith shop, a hotel, a store, and an elevator that could store 10,000 bushels of grain. That’s about as good as it got.
