The Historic Village of Wilson

On The Shores of Lake Ontario 


Welcome to the Historic Village of Wilson.  The Village of Wilson, the only incorporated village in Niagara County, was incorporated on May 11, 1858, and is located on the shores of Lake Ontario between the towns of Porter to the west and Newfane to the east.  It is approximately 18 miles from the County seat at the City of Lockport and similar distance from the Lewiston/Queenston Bridge linking Niagara County to Canada.


Cultural assets include the Wilson Free Library and the Wilson Historical Society Museum complex.


One of the ways the Village of Wilson benefits from the moderate climate of the region is the abundance of locally grown produce available.  The geographic orientation of Niagara County to Lake Ontario produces conditions favorable to the cultivation of tree-born fruits, grapes, and a variety of row cropped foodstuffs suitable for fresh consumption and perserving alike.
