A very rapidly developing community, Porus houses the Trinity United (Presbyterian) church among many other denominations, a police station, a comprehensive health clinic, schools and numerous other businesses. Continuing the climb towards Mandeville, there are roadside stalls at which fruits and some cultural items are available. Further to the east of the town, there is the Melrose attraction where jerked chicken, roasted yams, sweet potatoes, salt fish and drinks are on sale in shops strategically laid out juts off the road.
Lush vegetation is a hallmark of the area, which boasts a festival of some of the most luscious fruits, ackees, bananas pimento and a number of lime trees which provide fresh aroma for the air. Porous is also known for dasheen. Beautiful ornaments and flowers are unique to its enclaves as well.
The salubrious climate provides for comfortable residential occupancy. Estate type houses are fewer, having been replaced by more luxurious ones. A tributary of the Rio Minho River runs by the side of the main road and keeps refreshing the atmosphere with its cool waters. The fresh air from the back bush readily reminds travelers they’re entering a rural parish. The hilly terrain is more to the north, while the flat, wet lands are to the south.
The residents, mostly humble and friendly are hard working, mostly at agriculture and skills. Each generation seems to pass on a reminder of the struggles their ancestors endured on the way to freedom.
