Middleburg is a Casey county community about six miles northeast of Liberty on a hill at the Green River. It may be the site of the first settlement in Casey county. Much of the land was owned by Abraham Lincoln, grandfather of the president. He, or his son, sold some of his holdings to Christopher Riffe about 1803. Riffe built a mill on the Green River and later sold it to Jesse Coffey who expanded it. The locale became known as Coffey's Mill. The Middleburg name may come from a town in Virginia or its location between Liberty and Hustonville.
The Middleburgh post office opened in 1837.
