Midway, on U.S. Highway 271 five miles north of Gilmer in northern Upshur County, was established as a stop on the St. Louis and Southwestern Railway in the 1880s. In the mid-1930s the community, which served as a center for a lumbering and agricultural area, consisted of a sawmill, a store, and a number of scattered houses. The population in 1940 was forty. After World War II the number of residents grew slightly, reaching sixty by 1952, but in the mid-1960s all that remained of the settlement was a church and a few scattered houses. In 1990 Midway was a dispersed rural community with a church and one store. In 2000 the population was twenty.
