More than one third of the residential homes have been built since 1990 with resale prices ranging from the $60s to the $90s. New home prices range from the $90s to the $500s. The schools are great and are serviced by the Midlothian Independent School District. Navarro College is also located in Midlothian.
The primary question you're probably asking yourself is "why is this place called Midlothian?" It was originally called Hawkins Springs after founding father William Alden Hawkins. Somewhere along the line, the railroad line that is, the town's name changed. Most accounts agree that a homesick Scottish train engineer for the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe railway renamed the town after a favored location in his homeland. The name stuck.
Today, Midlothian is known for its unique location just south of Joe Pool Lake and for its proximity to Arlington, home of the outdoor theme park. Midlothian is also home to three of the largest cement factories in the United States, which serve as a prime economic engine. As Midlothian grows, it has managed to maintain a low crime rate and a relaxed lifestyle.
