October through September.
The stop in Middletown was constructed in 1990 and consists of a shelter and concrete platforms. The Harrisburg based Capitol Area Transit (CAT) stop is located less than one block from this location and provides easy connections.
There are plans to relocate the current stop to a location next to the Harrisburg International Airport; however this is dependent upon the Susquehanna Regional Airport Authority building a new airport rail station. The proposed design calls for the rail station and airport to be accessible through walkways connecting the two locations.
Middletown was originally occupied by the Conoy or Gawanese Indians, members of the Susquehanna Indian nation. In the late 1770s, Scotch-Irish settlers came to the area. In 1755, John Fisher acquired 691 acres of land on which the town was laid out. The town experienced rapid growth due to its beneficial location for trade.
Middletown was a noted supplies depot during the Revolutionary War. After the war, trading continued and the area became an important trading center for lumber, produce, grain and steel.
George Fisher, John Fisher’s son, founded Harborton in 1809 (later known as Portsmouth). In 1857, Portsmouth, Middletown and the land in between were incorporated into a larger city known as Middletown.
