    Beautiful grounds, but the barn is filthy dirty. I attended an event that was very nicely decorated, but the floor & chairs were so dirty...I wouldn't even set my purse in the floor. The ladies that did had to clean when they realized. I had wiped my chair because I was wearing white bottoms, & am I ever glad that I did. The napkin was just brown when I finished. I don't understand why the facility couldn't go in and spray everything off & give it a good cleaning. It's set up to be cleaned easily, if they would. I was very surprised to see the filth...Read More

    Midway Village is a terrific place for a variety of activities. From weddings, to re-enactments and even blacksmithing, there is something for everyone. I would recommend a visit to locals or tourists alike!

Beautiful grounds, but the barn is filthy dirty. I attended an event that was very nicely decorated, but the floor & chairs were so dirty...I wouldn't even set my purse in the floor. The ladies that did had to clean when they realized. I had wiped my chair because I was wearing white bottoms, & am I ever glad that I did. The napkin was just brown when I finished. I don't understand why the facility couldn't go in and spray everything off & give it a good cleaning. It's set up to be cleaned easily, if they would. I was very surprised to see the filth since it is a facility to rent for events. Sad that they wouldn't have more respect for their customers, as well as their reputation. I hope this is read by someone who can make some changes. If this issue is addressed, I would happily increase my rating.
