Middletown Delaware is one of the old Delaware towns not on a navigable waterway and is located in New Castle County. It was originally a tavern stop about half-way on the old cart road that extends between Appoquinimink Creek in Odessa and Bohemia Landing on the eastern branch of the Bohemia River in Maryland; thus the name, “Middletown.”
The town of Middletown was incorporated on Feb. 12, 1861. The first town council decided the town should be one-mile square, commencing at the corner of the crossroads and extending one-half mile in each direction. Thus it was known as the “Diamond Town of the Diamond State.” As the town has grown, its boundaries have extended in each direction.
