  • Located in Chautauqua County, New York along the shores of Lake Erie and rising 1000 feet to the Chautauqua Escarpment, Portland remains a rural township. Outside of the Village of Brocton, the Town is largely dominated by farmlands, woods and low density residential land uses, and its defining features are the many vineyards dotting the landscape.
