1808 seems like so long ago. To the people that moved to Middleport, New York, it was probably unimaginable that their small settlement would become an important place to meet people, exchange ideas, and purchase goods. It must have been a sight of wonder to watch as the Erie Canal was formed. Yet, that is exactly what happened. The city grew and strengthened until it became what it is today. You may think that it is strategically placed right between Buffalo, Niagara, and Rochester, but in honesty, these were not quite thought at the time. Some of the things that brought people to this area are the same things that will draw you to the city as well.
If you and your pup want to take in some history, the very first thing you should do is go to Town Hall. There is a map of the path that you can walk to see the historic city, from the clock tower to the very spot where President Roosevelt pronounced Middleport to be a "friendly city". Stop by the local vet's office when your dog needs some medical attention, or if you need advice on the dog-friendly amenities within the city and nearby.
If you and your pup are art lovers, then you should definitely take a walk along the Niagara Art Trail. This is where local artists can showcase their unique works of art. It is a fun experience where your dog can join you, as long as they are on a leash.
