Midway, Kentucky, is midway between Lexington and Frankfort. It is an old railroad town, a water stop in the steam fired days. The tracks run down the middle of Main Street street in town. The town has turned itself into a minor tourist stop, with shops and restaurants. There is a small private liberal art college, now calling itself a University on the edge of town. It is the kind of place where you could walk to most everything and everyone would know what everyone was doing.
I did a house call in Midway for Hospice one day. The client was born there, and and never been out of the county. Lexington, only 15 miles away was a frightening big city to her, she had never been there. She was glad that I was brave enough to live and work in Lexington (a city of about 250,000 people) and kind enough to see her at home.
Are you cut out for small town life?
