First Presbyterian Manse, also known as the Lavinia E. Porter House, is a historic home located at Niagara Falls in Niagara County, New York. It was built about 1849 and is a two-story, stucco covered, square brick dwelling in the Italianate style. It has a projecting full-height entrance and a rear addition. It has a low pitched gable roof with deep overhanging eaves and decorative brackets. The house was last renovated in 1927-1931. The home is associated with Lavinia E. Porter, daughter of Judge Augustus Porter (1769–1849). From its construction, it housed the manse for the local Presbyterian church.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.[1]
