A stainless steel sign recognizing Middleport Masonic Lodge #363, Free and Accepted Masons, now hangs at the entrance to Middleport on Powell Street, along with signs from other civic organizations and churches. Ed Neutzling offered to design and construct the 40-pound sign, which he said will last forever. It was presented to the Lodge, which ultimately decided to place it at the town’s entrance. It also announces the lodge’s meeting time. The Masons repaired the fencing at the village’s lower entrance from Ohio 7, and re-installed the signs that were already hanging there as part of this community project.
