On June 10th, 1774 Col. James Burd worked with a group of residents in Middletown to establish the Middletown Resolves. The Middletown Resolves are a group of resolutions formally protesting the oppressive acts of Britain’s Parliament against the American colonists. This essentially was Middletown’s Declaration of Independence 2 full years BEFORE our countries Declaration of Independence was adopted.
In 1974, the Middletown Borough council declared June 10th to be Middletown’s Independence Day to mark the anniversary of the Resolves. (The holiday is celebrated on the Saturday closest to the 10th).
Since the Bicentennial in 1976, the Middletown Area Historical Society has held an annual fair to celebrate Middletown’s independence.
