This project is to track those who are or were a part of making Middletown what it is today.

Middletown is the oldest town in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, having been founded in 1755. It is bordered on one side by the Susquehanna River and the Swatara Creek on the other. It has a very rich history, including canals, railroads, and ex-military base, Fort Meade, which was used during the Civil War, and other noteable moments in the history of the county and the city of Harrisburg.
