Midway, Madison County, Texas
Midway is at the junction of the La Bahía Road (now State Highway 21) and the Old San Antonio Road in northeastern Madison County. By 1854 a settlement existed at the site, but it was not until Joseph Addison Clark moved there in 1855 that the town was named after his hometown of Midway, Kentucky. A post office was opened in 1856, and that year Clark helped found and taught at the first school in Midway. Clark was also the first pastor at the Midway Church of Christ, a strong church for many years. The church had been established in 1854, and in the 1980s its congregation still worshipped in the original building at the same location. Other churches in Midway in the 1980s were the Midway Methodist Church, the South Side Church of Christ, and the Midway Assembly of God Church. The Methodist church was started in 1870, and it initially shared a minister with the Elwood Methodist Church. The Assembly of God Church (originally called the Apostolic Church) did not have its own building in Midway until 1948; its early members first met in the nearby Hideout School. In the 1980s it had about forty members.
