Midlothian, Illinois: Small Town History, Small Town Pride
What originally started as a rural stop for milk along the Rock Island Railroad in the late 1800s has blossomed into a cozy modern town with a population of fourteen thousand as of 2014. In fact, seventy-one percent of the area’s six-thousand homes are occupied by families, which is what makes Midlothian so friendly and safe.
