Founded in 1802, there are multiple theories how Middletown got its name. One theory holds that the founder, Stephen Vail, named it after his hometown of Middletown, NJ. Another theory is Middletown was named for its location midway between Cincinnati and Dayton. Conversely, there is the theory that Middletown is so named as it was the halfway point of navigation on the Great Miami River. In any event, Middletown is in the “middle” of everything!
With cultural events, outdoor activities, gaming, and food/beverage options, there is never a lack of things to do when you’re in Middletown. Here are a few of the Van Martin Commercial Roofing family favorites.
- Sorg Opera House. This architectural icon is undergoing renovation to bring it back to its original splendor. Despite the name, the Sorg is host to many different musical venues, theatrical productions, and seasonal events. Interestingly, John Phillips Sousa allegedly played the venue in 1898.
- Veteran’s Memorial. The beautiful park-like setting is a perfect location to honor the Nation’s heroes and share the importance of their sacrifice with our children.
- BeauVerre Riordan Studios. Housed in a restored turn of the century building located in the heart of Middletown, BeauVerre Riordan is the oldest continually operating stained glass studio in the United States. Enjoy their beautiful works of art and stay for dinner.
- Butler County Warbirds, Inc. More than just an aviation museum, the Warbirds offers the unique opportunity to take a flight around the area in one of the smallest planes you’ll ever sit in. The flight even ends with a grass runway landing! First class experience for the aviation aficionado in your family.
