Ⓒ Middleport Village

The Middleport Heritage Society (MHS) was incorporated in 2020 as a not-for-profit organization and in 2021 was granted registered charity status. We celebrate the rich history of Middleport and communities within the former Onondaga Township, County of Brant, ON.

In 2018, a recommendation to demolish St. Paul’s Chapel (1868), the sole surviving public heritage structure in the Village of Middleport was received.  This rallied community support to establish the Middleport Heritage Society that now stewards this rare framed board-and-batten structure.  St. Paul’s is the hub of the village and is a “living museum” nestled in its cemetery on the banks of the heritage designated Grand River.  MHS offers this venue for multipurpose community events and private celebrations.

MHS is grateful for the support of its membership, the community, County of Brant and the Ontario Historical Society.

An elected volunteer Board of Directors guides the organization’s purpose to document, educate and preserve the remarkable natural, cultural and build heritage of the community.
