The first known European settler who constructed homes in Middletown CA was J.H. Berry. He constructed a home in 1870 near Harbin Hot Springs. He was soon joined by many English settlers who established a thriving quicksilver mining industry that lasted until the end of the 19th century.

Middleton residents established a robust ranching industry during the early 1900s that attracted many new settlers to the area. Many of the ranches that were established during this time were located near thriving farms that produced high-quality pears and walnuts.

Middleton's economy received a boost during the 1950s after residents established several resorts near Harbin Hot Springs and Hidden Valley Lake. These resorts were replaced in the late 1970s and early 1980s by electrical power plants that were located near Harbin Hot Springs.

The demand for Middleton homes for sale increased during the 1990s after Bay Area-residents discovered the value of Middleton's location near Hidden Valley Lake and the Bay Area's largest employers.
