At one time Atomic City, Idaho was actually called Midway, Idaho. This might have been because the town is halfway between the towns of Blackfoot and Arco. The town also used to have a much bigger population back when the neighboring DOE site was bigger. There is one store and one bar in the town. The store no longer sells gas due to new laws pertaining to its underground gas tanks. Most of the people who were raised in the town have now passed on. Many of the current residents are retired. There is an RV park on the south end of town with full hookups, and in the summers there are stock car races.
