Posted by ML on July 6, 2014      My husband J., my daughter, M. and I moved into Midfield Park in 1979 - We raised our daughter and became part of a community that was home to us until this a very day. To call this "community" just a place to live, easily replaced by another one, to me is just not true. If the park is closed down, we literally. . . .

Posted by S&PK on September 16, 2011      Our first introduction to Midfield Mobile Home Park was in 1969 when family friends bought a brand new park model which was located overlooking the Elks Club.

Here in Midfield, I can easily walk to the grocery store, my. . . .
