Middleton is the #4 Best Place to Live in America out of the Top 10. As a suburb of Madison, Middleton had access to over 5,000 open jobs in the fall of 2009, about the same at a year ago.

From 1990 - 2008, the local population of Pillion and Madison has increased about 20%. In light if this increase, Middleton may become one hub of a new 13-mile railroad corridor that links Middleton to the University of Wisconsin–Madison as well as downtown and eastside Madison.

Urban Development

Middleton Hills is a housing development much influenced by the industriously styles of Frank Lloyd Wright.

The development is located on small plots of land close together with neat houses featuring specific architectural styles that include from porches and tiny front yards. The narrow streets are an obstacle to speeding, but encourage neighbors to walk across the street and meet one another. Organized garage sales do the same thing.

Businesses are located in or adjacent to this downtown neighborhood and many residents walk to do their errands and grocery shopping. It's a great place to live, with a low crime rate.

One of the improvements to the area is the relocation of the National Mustard Museum and Gift Shop and its yearly national holiday festivities to Middleton.

National Mustard Day

Do you like mustard? Are you a mustard connoisseur?

National Mustard Day and its accompanying festival occur on the first Saturday every August in Middleton,led by the folks at the National Mustard Museum and Gift Shop. They moved over from Mt. Horeb in 2009 to bring a lot of fun and good eats to Middleton and more people.

All kinds of events happen on Mustard Day. Artists pain in mustard. Thousands of hot dogs with mustard fill the tummies of men, women, and children that wonder by to wonder what's going on.

While they are in the vicinity, they can see a collection of 5,000 mustards from around the world and about 1500 or so mustard containers of various interesting types. Visitors should look to see if the Captain Mustard comic and trading cards are still around.

Beware the Ketchup Fines!

Generally, the tradition at the festival is to pass out free hotdogs with mustard. However, there's a $10 fine if you ask for ketchup!

Wisconsin Native American Nations

Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin

Up to 10,000 of this nation live in Wisconsin, many between Middleton and their headquarters to the north in Kenesha..

The Menominee Nation is an Eastern Woodlands group that were mound builders in the past. They traded furs with the French around nearby Lake Mendota around 1830. By 1856, a railroad line had come through Madison to the Mississippi River and Prairie du Chien, more specifically, through East Middleton to Pheasant Branch over land that became Middleton. This increased the numbers of Euroamericans - mostly German and English - that came in to settle. The local Railroad Station is a popular tourist attraction today, although is was quite active in commercial transport of wheat and lumber.

The lumber also created wealth for the Menominee that owned and worked forested lands. In 1954, the US Federal Government declared the Menominee Nation self sufficient and eliminated their reservation. However, as lumber declined as an industry, the native nation suffered and were reinstated as a federally recognized tribe in 1973 by President Richard Nixon. By 1979, the Menominee had their own reservation, constitution, and democratic government.
