Lester Shoalts, founder of Lester Shoalts Ltd, built Portal Village Retirement Home in 1986. He recognized that local Port Colborne and Wainfleet seniors were moving out of their homes and apartments but had few available options. Portal Village is based on a design Lester had seen in his native Pennsylvania and is a cherished Port Colborne retirement residence.
A second location, Lookout Ridge Retirement Home opened in 2008 in Fonthill. Lester and his sons, Todd Shoalts and Gerry Shoalts, designed and built Lookout Ridge with the assistance of many individuals. Lester Shoalts Ltd. acted as General Contractor and relied on the excellent workmanship of many local tradespeople. Lookout Ridge has 165 suites providing three levels of care. Thanks to our residents and dedicated staff, Lookout Ridge has become a retirement community of choice in the Niagara Region.
