Midway Real Estate
Midway is a city in Wasatch County, located in the Heber Valley, west of Heber City and southeast of Salt Lake City, on the opposite side of the Wasatch Mountains. The population was 3,845 at the 2010 census.
Historically, the first Anglo-Americans to visit the area just east of Mount Timpanogos were members of a fur-trapping brigade led by Etienne Provost in 1824. For many years, the valley was referred to as Provo or upper Provo; the river running south through the valley still bears the name of that explorer but the town became known as Midway City.
From the beginning, Midway’s industry was based on livestock and farming; however, as the town grew so did the need for building materials.
Nearby mines, particularly those in Park City, also began to play an important economic role in many Midway households, and did so into the late 1960s.
