Midland is an exciting place with so much to offer. The people have been called “the most friendly people in the world,” the town is enchanting and beautiful, and the culture is shinning everywhere. The city started out of sheer convenience. Because the city sits in as a half way point between Fort Worth and El Palso the train often stopped here giving the city a purpose. The city was not well known until it was over known. The city has received national recognition as the hometown of former First Lady Laura Bush, and the onetime home of former President George H.W. Bush, former President George W. Bush, and former First Lady Barbara Bush. Now Midland celebrates the lives of two presidents, two governors, and two first ladies. The childhood home sits untouched at 1412 W. Ohio Avenue still a preserved sitting image of the 1950s. The home has recently undergone a 2 part phase. Phase 1 was the full restoration of the architectural details and leaving the home fully furnished. Phase 2 brought two homes from neighbors into the new development. With these additions a Visitor Center and Exhibit Gallery were added. The landscape is left the same so that the site still looks like a neighborhood but leaves you the opportunity to discover the past history and roots of the people who helped guide and form the Country. Midland has so much to offer the visitors that you may want to stay.
