Midlothian History

The area now known as Midlothian was initially a milk stop along the Rock Island Railroad. One of the early names of this region was 'Rexford Crossing.' It was later renamed Midlothian after an ancient borough in Scotland. A group of wealthy Chicago industrialists arrived in this area in 1900. Soon after, passenger trains started running through the area, which brought large numbers of people in its wake. Land developers had begun arriving by 1915, and farms were turned into land for housing developments. The Village of Midlothian was officially incorporated on March 17, 1927.
