Legends say the name of this town was suggested by a homesick Scottish train engineer after his hometown in the old country. The change to Midlothian was officially made in 1882 when the Gulf, Colorado, Santa Fe railroad arrived. A log cabin that still stands today served as the town’s first school, church, and community hall. The town was officially incorporated in 1888 when there were 25 essential businesses in operation like newspapers, bakeries, millineries, and confectionaries. Today it is one of Texas’ fastest-growing cities and a hub for the cement industry as it has three production facilities and a steel mill. It is also a great place to live with diverse jobs opportunities, a wide range of housing options, beautiful park, and a great public school system. Here homeowners have enjoyed a steady increase in the value of their homes and the median list price per square foot. It is a cool buyers market indicating a good time to buy and there are 175 new home communities to choose from. Crosstown engineering is here to help both buyers and sellers by providing honest and fair engineering reports, foundation evaluations, and home inspections.
