Middletown is a city located in Middlesex County, Connecticut, located along the Connecticut River, 16 miles south of Hartford.  The mid-19th century saw manufacturing replace trade as Middletown's economic mainstay; however, industrial growth was limited by railroad operators' decision to bypass Middletown when tracks were laid between Hartford and New Haven.
