Town of Porter Historical Society

The history of the Town of Porter and Youngstown is shaped by the lower Niagara River and the Great Lakes. Its relationship to Old Fort Niagara and proximity to Canada has shaped its unique economic and cultural heritage. The purpose of the museum, located in the Red Brick Schoolhouse, is to promote this heritage to local residents and visitors through a wide range of research and educational programs aimed at multi-generational audiences. There are a diversity of exhibits and collections built through collaboration and technology at this active museum.
