Middleton is a Simpson county community about nine miles northwest of Franklin. The community was centered around Baird's store nearby in Logan county in the mid-nineteenth century, but soon moved to Simpson county. It may be named because of its location midway between Russellville and Franklin. At one time it had a hotel, schools, stores, and other businesses.
A post office operated in the area from 1878 to 1884 at Millikens Store and from 1881 to 1910 at Stowers Store.
