The Midlothian Civic Center may not bring up much on a Google search, but it has been a community staple since its inception in 1958. It was built for the community and by the community, using recycled bricks from an old school building down the street that was being torn down.

The Civic Center Board purchased the bricks for a single dollar from the city and then went to work reclaiming them. Every evening, families would gather to sift through the usable bricks, cleaning them and setting them aside to build something magnificent from the rubble.
