Borough of Midland
Often called “a small city with a big heart", our location is second to none for proximity to one of the most livable big cities in America — Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our weather has often been called “the best in the country”. Our early multicultural beginnings have given rise to a virtual melting pot of ethnic diversity, and you will find extensive numbers of churches, social organizations, and a friendly, welcoming community of people who will make you feel comfortable and safe. We will be happy to show you around so that you can discover what is so good and rewarding about small-town living.
An Amazing Place to Live and Work
By partnering with Midland Development Corp., Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center, and Midland Arts Council, Midland is defining itself as the cultural and artistic destination of Beaver County.
Having secured funding for downtown improvements, the borough underwent an ‘extreme make-over’ on its main thoroughfare, Midland Ave. New sidewalks and streetlights and the improvements to building facades have had a dramatic effect on the impression downtown makes on visitors.
With over 650 professionals coming into town every day to work, a good deal of traffic making its way each day down the main thoroughfare, and with many attending the cultural and arts performances, Midland is well-positioned to expand its’ already thriving retail and restaurant base.
Now, with the $6 Billion Shell Cracker Plant currently under construction, Midland is anticipating a substantial increase in industry and residents, taking advantage of its' close proximity to this new mega-plant.
