   African Violet Kaper by F. Richter Big Maria Mountains in Midland, California


The next Midland Reunion will be in 2021.

Welcome to my website. I have information, stories and photos about Midland, located in the California desert. This United States Gypsum Co. (USG) town is gone, dismantled and trucked away after the gypsum ran out. If you worked in the mine, lived in Midland, CA or have relative that lived or worked in Midland, here is the place for you to get in touch with old friends, classmates, and the desert you loved.
