MIDDLETOWN, Del. - Feb. 24, 2014 - PRLog -- Through stunning images, this pictorial history depicts the evolution of Middletown. The area was initially just a stop for traders about halfway along a cart road between the Appoquinimink Creek in Delaware and the Bohemia River in Maryland, but soon became a profitable, farming community. Author Shauna McVey, takes readers through the town’s history since its incorporation in 1861 to its attraction as a suburb in the 1980s.

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.”
