The Middleton Visitor Center, at 1811 Parmenter Street, is a great place to stop to pick up maps, brochures and the free Middleton visitors guide. You can also check out the list of trolley stops and ask tourism staff for recommendations on shopping and dinner.
The depot is also a historic landmark built in 1895. It served as an active passenger station until 1960 and a freight depot until 1975. The building, now on the National Register of Historic Places, is beautifully refurbished and home to the Middleton Visitors Center and Visit Middleton offices, as well as a small curation of historic depot and train photographs and artifacts, provided by the Middleton Area Historical Society.
Can’t get enough history? Check out the Middleton Historical Museum, just a short walk from the depot. Open mid-April to mid-October, Tuesdays from 1-4 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
The Middleton Visitors Center is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday. If in the area on the weekend and in need of Middleton materials, just stop by the National Mustard Museum (four doors down)!Categories:
