Named for its location at roughly the mid-point, Midway was a station on the Wadsworth-Columbus Freight Route, active from 1873-1882. Later, it became a road house during the boom at Rawhide. During the 1920's, the Weston Brothers – a notorious group of outlaws – made their home at Midway. In addition, auto painting and the production of moonshine during prohibition were rumored to occur at the old station. Stone ruins remain. Interestingly, despite not being listed as a station in 1875, Midway appears on a survey map from 1884 as “Sargent's Station.”
