Middletown had an important place in the railway history of the region. Most residents were employed at the many factories in the town.
By the 1960s, like the rest of the country, many of the factories started to close. At the same time, shopping centers were being built right outside the downtown area in Wallkill. Residents started to live in the suburbs that are more spread out, leading to empty store fronts on Main Street. Some of the Middletown businesses actually had to move to the Orange Plaza.
The first Lloyd's Supercenter was built in Wallkill, and then came the Galleria at Crystal Run and Orange Plaza. The section of Route 211 where all these shopping centers were built was dubbed the "Miracle Mile". It was a prime example of the birth of shopping centers. Actually even more shopping centers and big box stores have opened in Middletown over the years, making it even more convenient.
Nowadays, the downtown area of Middletown is still lined with beautiful Victorian homes. Visitors to Middletown can enjoy seeing a film at the Paramount Movie Theater, or visit a children's museum called the Interactive Museum.
