Middletown, Ohio

Middletown is a city in southwestern Ohio. Located along the Great Miami River, Middletown has a current population of approximately 68,600. Situated roughly halfway between Dayton and Cincinnati, Middletown has long been a major transportation hub, with river access, canals, railroads and a major highway linking the three cities. Middletown has a diverse economy, with prominent employers including AK Steel, Magellan Aerospace, and Atrium Medical Center. Revitalization efforts have preserved downtown Middletown's rich historic character, and encouraged a burgeoning arts scene.

Middletown was first incorporated in 1833, and became a city in 1886. During the late 19th and 20th centuries, Middletown became heavily industrialized, with tobacco and steel among the prominent industries. The first tobacco company in Middletown was founded in 1870. In 1877, one of its owners broke away to found the P.J. Sorg Tobacco Company, which operated until 1912, when it was acquired by the P. Lorillard Company. Lorillard was the largest tobacco company in Middletown after 1912, and managed to survive through the Depression. The Middletown plant declined after a 1938 strike, and closed in 1951. The American Rolling Mill Company, or Armco, was founded in Middletown in 1899. Today, as AK Steel, they maintain an active production facility in Middletown, although the headquarters have been moved to West Chester, Ohio. Paper was another major industry, with more than a dozen mills operating prior to 1900, several of which were consolidated in the Paul A. Sorg Paper Company. Sorg merged with Mosinee Paper Company in 1987. The company, now Wasau Paper, still operates a mill in Middletown.
