8) The Midway Historic District
Once an influential center for political, economic, and religious life, the colonial town of Midway was founded by New England Puritans in 1752. These colonists were strongly in favor of independence from Great Britain, and during the Revolution the church and most of the buildings in the town were burned by the British. The church was rebuilt in 1792. Also remaining to represent the colonial era of Midway are the historic 1756 cemetery and a segment of the historic "Old Sunbury Road" now a portion of Georgia highway 38. A museum modeled after the houses that once stood in Midway is also located in the district.
The Midway Historic District is at the junction of US Highway 17 and Georgia Highway 38. The museum is open Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 am. - 4:00 p.m., Sunday 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Closed holidays. Admission. (912) 884-5837.
