Maple Valley Bookstore
If you're like me then you probably buy most of your books online from retailers such as Amazon. Initially I started buying books online because they were much cheaper than buying them locally. The problem is that everybody else also started buying books online and many of the local book shops are closed up. I miss going and perusing the books at an actual book store. Fortunately in Middleton the Maple Valley bookstore is still alive and active. The Maple Valley bookstore stock is heavy on Amish religious books, what if you're living amongst the almost there actually very interesting to read. Having an actual book store you can walk into is a big plus to living in Middleton Ohio.
Amish and Tourism
Any small towns it's hard to start a business that is viable because there's not a lot of people. In Middleton it's easier than in other small rural areas because Middleton is a magnet attracts people coming to visit the Amish for a day.
The Times for maybe a large influx of visitors during the peak travel times for the area and that can get very frustrating unfortunately the influx of visitors is generally spread throughout the year. Yes there are negatives associated with an influx of visitors but I think the positive advantages definitely outweigh the negatives.

Yes we do tend to have a love hate relationship with Wal-Mart. you're somebody who likes to shop at Walmart then you will be glad to know that you have one available to you if you move to Middleton or the surrounding area.
What’s awesome about the Middleton Wal-Mart is that they cater to the Amish. There are hitching post where the Amish can park there buggies and tighter horses up. It’s pretty freaking cool to go to Wal-Mart and see buggies lined up in the parking lot. When people come from out of town to visit you at your new home in Middleton they will definitely find it amusing when you take them to Wal-Mart and they see the Amish buggies parked there.
