Middletown History

Stephen Vail was the founder of the present-day Middletown. The area was originally a part of Franklin Township, Turtlecreek Township and the Township of Lemon. It was incorporated on February 11, 1833. In 1886, Middletown became a city. The area was so named because of its central location between Dayton and Cincinnati. Middletown began to flourish as a major industrial center only after the completion of the Miami and Erie Canal. Middletown was the home of AK Steel Holding Corporation, one of the major steel works in America. However, the company moved to the Township of West Chester, Ohio in 2007.
