Country Quality of Life with Urban Amenities
Making up the 38 square miles of Northwest Ellis County, Midlothian is known for its rapid growth, good schools, and strong industry presence – all within less than 30 min of both Dallas and Fort Worth.
In the 1800s, settlement began to take place in what would become Ellis County. With the coming of the railroad, Midlothian grew and was incorporated and founded in April 1888. Cattle raising was the most profitable business. When the railroad arrived, large scale farming was possible. Ellis County became known as one of the nation’s leading cotton growing areas.
Legend has it that Midlothian was named when a train engineer stated that the local countryside reminded him of his homeland in Scotland (Lothian) and since the location served as the midpoint between Dallas and Cleburne, and between Ennis and Fort Worth, the name was accepted.
Check out the farmers market every other weekend in the summer or walk the shops of historic downtown.
