The Village of Middleport is a village located on the historic Erie Barge Canal in Niagara County, New York. We are about equidistant from Buffalo, Niagara Falls, and Rochester. As of the 2010 US Census, the population of the Village is 1,860 residents.
The Village's motto is "A Friendly Community." When US President Franklin D. Roosevelt stopped in Middleport during a trip on the canal, he commented that Middleport looked like "a friendly community." We take pride in our Village and hope that when you visit, you find that we live up to our motto.
Niagara Co. Health Dept has notified us of a planned water shutdown for maintenance on Tuesday, April 17, 2018, in the morning. Water pressure may be lowered. Once restored, the water may be cloudy due to air that has gotten into the line. Please flush your lines with COLD water only for a minimum of 5 minutes, starting with the bathtup and working your way to smaller taps, flushing the ones on the second floor first (if applicable) and working your way to the lowest tap. The water will be safe to drink. For more information, please call the Village Hall at 7916-735-3303.
The Middleport Fire Co. No. 1, Inc. would like to remind everyone that under no circumstances should fire hydrants be painted by private individuals without prior approval from the Village and the Fire Company.
