The Town of Midway is located in the northern section of Davidson County, North Carolina and was incorporated on June 29, 2006. Midway is Davidson County's fifth and newest incorporated municipality. At the time of formation, the town encompassed eight square miles with a population of 4,399. After citizens requested annexation, Midway now covers nine square miles with a population of 4,700.
Through the leadership of John Faust and Norman Wilkes and the guidance of Senator Stan Bingham the community sought incorporation from 2004-2006 to protect their community and to retain its own identity. In 2004 an interim council (Larry Jenkins, Betty Nifong, Steve Stokes, Barbara Temple, Carl Tuttle, and Norman Wilkes ) was established. In 2005 a petition drive gathered the required signatures of 51 percent of the voting population within the proposed town limits. On June 28, 2006 Senate Bill S1852 was unanimously ratified, therefore establishing the "Town of Midway". The town was officially incorporated on June 29, 2006. Norman Wilkes was the town's first mayor. The Town of Midway had its first official election on November 3, 2007. George Byrum was elected as Mayor along with Councilmen John Byrum, Mike McAlpine, Robin Moon, Todd Nifong, and Wiley Nifong.
