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.
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.
VILLAGE RESIDENTS: PLEASE BE ADVISED that at approximately 9 pm on Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2017, the Niagara County Water District will be shutting off water on Route 31 (Telegraph/Rochester Road) for a short period of time. The Village has back up water from the Town of Hartland, so there should NOT be any interruption of service. If there is, it is because of this shut down and should not be cause for concern. If you DO lose water service, once it is restored make sure you run COLD WATER ONLY for a minute or two to flush the lines of any sediment that may have settled during the shut off time. Running hot water can case the sediment to settle in your hot water tank.
