Today, Midwest retains many original company cottages that still convey their historical apperance, although some have been remodeled or re-sided. Most of the old commercial district, including the Salt Creek Hotel, boardinghouse, and recreation center/library, have been razed except for the two-story, wood frame community hall at the southeast end of town. The old school buildings have been razed, but the wood frame teacherage remains as a private residence the old stucco hospital, later used for company offices, still stands and is now used as the town hall.
