Highland Custom Homes
The Midway, Utah area was first visited by a fur trapper named Etienne Provost in 1824. The town of Midway was named for a fort that was built in the area. In the 1860s, a large number of Swiss families arrived in Midway, and the community was truly born.
Located just minutes from the breathtaking Provo River Canyon and just north of Mount Timpanogos, Midway is surrounded by postcard-perfect scenery. This small community is home to about 5,000 residents, but is conveniently located about 35 minutes from the larger towns of Provo and Orem. Salt Lake City, the state’s largest city and home to the Salt Lake International Airport, is about 45 minutes away.
