Biographical/Historical: Middletown, originally known as Senseny Town, was chartered on May 4, 1796, by Dr. Peter Senseny. The name was changed to Middletown because it was located mid-way between Stephens City and Strasburg. It is located south of Winchester, VA on US Route 11, also known as the Great Wagon Road.
