The Town seal is a view of Middlefield as seen through
scope of a gun. The crosshairs represent the gun sight manufacturing that
has taken place in Middlefield for many years.
The four quadrants of the sight represent different aspects of the towns
history and heritage. The upper left-hand quadrant is a picture of a
1700's salt box home that still stands in Middlefield. The upper
right-hand quadrant represents the orchards and farmland that make up much
of the open space of Middlefield. The lower left-hand quadrant represents
many of the outdoor activities that go on in Middlefield such as hunting,
fishing, boating, skiing, golfing and more. The lower right-hand quadrant
is the old pistol shop representing industry in Middlefield.
The seal was designed by local resident Donald Ginter.
