MIDCITY, TEXAS. Midcity, at the junction of U.S. Highway 271 and Farm Road 906, fourteen miles northeast of Paris in northern Lamar County, was settled around 1900. During the mid-1930s the community had a church, a school, and a number of houses; several stores were also located in the area. After World War II many of the residents moved away, but in the 1990s Midcity still had a church and several businesses. By 2000 the population was reported as fifty.
