Pros & Cons

Residents have been fighting to maintain the rural character of Cambria, a town of fewer than 6,000 residents. If you like the great outdoors and wide-open spaces, Cambria might be for you. Here you’re close to busier Lockport, the Niagara County seat, and only about 15 miles from Niagara Falls.
