The town of Middleton, Wisconsin, is just a short 15-minute drive from Madison, the capital city of Wisconsin, and located on the western portion of Lake Mendota. The town has just under 20,000 residents, making it a tight-knit community haven away from its neighboring large city.
Just under 27 percent of households have children under 18 years of age. Almost half of the people living in the town are married, and there is a small population of senior citizens. This city is family-oriented and young. It keeps adding residents as the nearby metropolitan area grows. The median annual household income is above the national average at just over $50,000.
History of the Town
The town began as a trading post in 1832. The city was a major community center for different Native American tribes to meet, and Native American monuments still exist in the town today. In the 1840s, the British started to move and settle into the area. It was formally part of Madison up until 1848. When it formally became its own town, the residents renamed it from Peatville to its current name. History credits the town’s postmaster at the time, Henry Barnes, for naming the town after his former place of residence in Vermont.
Things to Do in Middleton
Due to its location by a lake, the town has lots of scenery to enjoy. The Pheasant Branch Conservancy consists of over 500 acres of lush parkland and the Pheasant Branch Creek. It has lots of trails to choose from and visitors can take in an impressive view of prairie and creek from the top of the mound. People also make use of Lake Mendota, the largest lake in Wisconsin. The lake is full of people enjoying water sports when the weather is warm. Families with children spend time at Lakeview Park to play on the many playgrounds and use the splash pad for fun in the summertime. Capital Brewery, an award-winning brewery, has an open beer garden from spring through the fall.
Getting around Middleton
As part of its small-town charm, the city maintains a free trolley service to take visitors to major landmarks within the city. The stops service the majority of the hotels in town and the attractions, including a stop at Capital Brewery. Middleton also has an airport and city bus transportation. The town’s proximity to Madison makes it convenient to use its airport, and a train service regularly operates between the two cities. The train service also shares a line with the university in Madison.
