We're dedicated to preserving history and creating community, and know the two go hand in hand.

​Lockport has a vibrant history, centered around the Erie Canal that runs through the heart of downtown. Historic buildings, like the Post Office Building that houses our offices, line Main Street.

Some of these buildings still contain their original businesses, such as the Palace Theatre. Others, like Old City Hall, have been repurposed to house new businesses.​ Still other businesses find their homes in more recent additions.

We're here to help all of them thrive.
