The city will host a community event the evening of April 9 at the Middleton Fire station.

Middleton originated as a fur-trading post in the 1830s, according to a release from the city. Railroad tracks were laid through the area, with Middleton Station created in 1856. In 1905 Middleton Station became incorporated as a village, dropping the "Station" but retaining the name "Middleton."

Middleton now has 18,000 residents.
