Midway is an unincorporated community located in the town of Onalaska, La Crosse County, Wisconsin, United States.[1]


Midway was originally called Halfway Creek, after a nearby creek; when a railroad depot was built the present name of Midway was adopted.[2] The Midway post office closed in 1934.[3]

In June 2013, the Town of Onlaska voted to seek incorporation as a village and to call the new village Midway. The Onalaska Town Hall is located in the unincorporated community of Midway, Wisconsin.[4]
