Midland, Michigan

 

Midland is located in northeastern Midland County. It was first settled by John A. Whitman, who began a farm here in 1836. Located at the mouth of the Chippewa River which enters into the Tittabawassee River, this city originally grew as a strategic distribution point for floating wood during the late 1800ís lumbering boom. Later, Herbert H. Dow started the Brine & Salt Works, which later became Dow Chemical Company, currently the cityís largest business.

Today, Midland thrives as a diverse economic and cultural center, and remains the county seat. The fieldstone courthouse downtown is truly one of Michiganís architectural wonders, not to mention the "Tridge," a triple-sectioned walking bridge in City Park, spanning the junction of the Chippewa and Tittabawassee Rivers. Midland is also part of the Pere Marquette Rails-To-Trails State Park, which makes it a great spot for bicycling, with the trail currently paved 35 miles westward to Coleman. Midland also has a great downtown, with many specialty shops and restaurants, all along a beautiful bricked sidewalk. Come and make a day of it in Midland, and youíll be coming back again!
