Churches
Portage has a rich and varied heritage in churches.  Early in this century many people migrated from Europe to the Portage area, and wanted to worship with othersof similar ethnic backgrounds.  And so, they built churches in which their native tongues and familiar traditions were followed.  Throughout the years, the community has been enriched by the languages, customs and beauty of the variety of churches.
