According to Love Exploring, this is why it was named the most underrated town in all of Kentucky:

You'll be thoroughly charmed by downtown Midway which is packed with colourful storefronts and art galleries, plus American grills, cute cafés, and inns. It was originally a booming railroad town and tracks, used by freight trains, still route through the quaint place. It's also home to one of the region's top wineries – <a href="" target="_blank">Equus Run Vineyards</a> – and Bluegrass Railroad Museum, which tells of the area's railroading history.
