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.
