The settlement of the Georgia colony began in its coastal region long before the American Revolution. Part of its history is carefully preserved and available today in the beautiful old city of Midway. Midway is one of Georgia’s best kept residential secrets: it is a prosperous city in which 78% of its households are families raising children, and a place that many seniors call home as they enjoy a peaceful retirement.
Midway attracts new residents annually. Its residential neighborhoods and schools are highly desired by those assigned to nearby Fort Stewart, home of the 3rd Infantry Division of the U.S. Army. In addition to civilian employment opportunities at base, Midway has nine manufacturing plants in its industrial park as well as an enormous Target distribution center employing around 1,000 people. Most residents have less than a 10- 20 minute commute to work daily.
