Middletown depicts how the area developed its own industry of trade and agriculture and became locally famous for crops such as peaches. The community’s charm and agricultural roots still remain, and thousands flock to the town annually to celebrate its heritage at the Middletown Historical Society’s Olde-Tyme Peach Festival. McVey hopes that the book “will connect longtime and newer residents of Middletown with the town’s rich history and inspire others to appreciate its roots.”
