In 1813 a covered toll bridge was built and twelve years later, the Freemyer House was constructed which was the largest hotel in Middleburgh. With the beginning of the M&S Railroad in 1866, businesses sprung up around the railroad yard and down Railroad Avenue. In 1881 the Village of Middleburgh was incorporated.

In 1886 the most devastating fire in Middleburgh’s history occurred. The village recovered quickly and most of the modern Business District was completed. In 1912 by the Bicentennial of the first settlement, the Village was a bustling place.

As the United States increasingly shifted from a rural agrarian nation to the modern urban/suburban society, Middleburgh like most upstate New York towns and villages felt the effects. With the local economy moving away from the traditional agriculture, many of the businesses that supported the local farming community disappeared. During the 1970’s and 1980’s Malls and chain stores dealt a severe blow to what remained of the traditional Main Street Business District.

In the mid 1990’s, serious efforts were begun to revitalize downtown Middleburgh. There are Main Street and Small cities grant/loan programs to rehabilitate building facades, create and improve apartments, and encourage and enable small businesses to use the old store fronts.
