Porter depicts the history of a town that has been shaped by the strategic military position of Fort Niagara. Like other towns, Porter has often confronted the challenge of preserving its identity. Yet, gradual changes over the centuries have not altered, for the most part, the quality of life in its villages of Youngstown and Ramsomville and across the rest of its 19,870 acres. This northwest Niagara County community still cherishes its heritage, lush farmlands, classic mix of suburban and rural settings, and unique role in Niagara frontier history.
