Midlothian is an unincorporated community in Lincoln County, Oklahoma, United States. The post office was established in 1902 and the town plat filed in 1904. The post office closed in 1919 and the school was consolidated with the Chandler School District in the 1940s.

The area’s pioneers named Midlothian for Midlothian county in Scotland; they thought the green hills looked similar.[1]
