The former Midway school has been restored and sits next to the Harbor History museum in downtown Gig Harbor. The picture you have here, taken in 2011,is the residence next door to the Midway School in Midway on 38th St. This picture was the home to the Doyle family until recently. The school sat to the west of it.

The former Midway School lapsed into disrepair after the district restructured and abandoned it. In the mid 1970s it was featured as part of a "Down the road" Sunday edition series for the local daily. James Erickson did the story interviewing former students while Warren Anderson took the images. The building has since been purchased and remodeled into a private residence and maintains some resemblance to its original form.
