History & History Related Items

The area was visited by trapper Etienne Provost in 1824. The whole valley became known as Provo or upper Provo with the local river also named for him. Later on, the town became known as Midway City. The first real settlers came in 1858 when a road was opened through Provo Canyon. A few small communities began called the Upper and Lower Settlements. One of these was later named Mound City. When Indian troubles forced the residents to build a fort for protection, they built it halfway between the two communities. This was the beginning of Midway. Many of the early settlers were of Swiss descent. As the area grew, so did the need to supplies and jobs. Several sawmills were built in the mid-1800s. Later a gristmill was added along with a number of retail stores. Due to the hot springs in the area, a few resorts were built which brought in new visitors and residents. Midway City incorporated 1 June 1891.

While agriculture is important in the local economy, recreation is rapidly becoming the leading industry in the area with many ski areas, spas, trails and more
