Middleton is situated on the north bank of the Annapolis River. Incorporated in 1909, it is located near the centre of the Annapolis Valley, from which it gets its nickname, "The Heart of the Valley".

Middleton is home to the Annapolis Valley MacDonald Museum, which is housed in the original Macdonald Consolidated School. This school, founded in 1903, was the first consolidated school in Canada, established with a grant from the Macdonald Tobacco Company of Montreal.

The museum has many travelling exhibits, and is the home of the Nova Scotia Museum Clock collection.

Middleton hosts an annual three day festival called "Heart of the Valley Days" every summer, during the month of July. The Middleton Farmers' Market operates every Friday throughout the summer and fall.
