Middletown

Annexation and natural growth sped a tripling of the population between 2000 and 2010—with another doubling projected for the next 10 years, so Middletown keeps a steady eye on future needs. Sprawling subdivisions like the emerging Village at Bayberry—with almost 2,000 new homes planned for 1,600 acres—surround a quaint downtown with plenty of salons, restaurants, gift shops, florists, and the Everett Theatre and Gibby Center. Effort is focused, in fact, on keeping important town functions centered on Broad and Main (site of the annual Hummers Parade each New Year’s Day—arguably an important civic function of another kind). Still a small town? It may be fourth-largest in the state but, yes, you bet.
