The place that is currently known as “Bemus Point” was first housed in 1806 by William Bemus. William Bemus purchased the entire land of Chautauqua Lake’s both side I 1805 from the Holland Land Company for 1.50 dollars. After purchasing the land, he moved with his family to the east shore of Chautauqua Lake on 9th of March 1806, whereas it is the area known today as Bemus Point. The entire family of William Bemus lived in a cabin log of approximately 500 – 600 ft. (150 – 200m) northeastern part of the today’s landing site of ferry. The descendants of William Bemus still live on the original property of the family along the north Lakeside Drive of Bemus Street.

The ferry that connects the Bemus Point to Stow was established by Thomas Bemus in 1811.

The lake is closed during the winter months and the motorists have no choice but to travel southeast to James to or northwest to Mayville in order to reach Stow. Both route has a 31km (19 mile) round trip.
