Welcome to The Lawson Center

L.S. Aero Marine, the boat sales store and marina at 73 Lakeside Drive, Bemus Point, NY sold boats directly from Christopher Columbus Smith before Chris-Craft Corporation even existed. The historic building is now an exciting museum with exhibits and activities for the whole family.

Get AMAZON to Give TLC Money $$$$

If you normally buy things via the AMAZON website, did you know about the AMAZON SMILE program?
If you go to www.smile.amazon.com, you can select The Lawson Center as your charity of choice.
Every time you buy something using the via the smile.amazon.com site, AMAZON will donate a portion of your order amount to us.  Magic!  And it doesn’t cost you anything.  You still pay the same amount that you would have through the regular AMAZON site, but your favorite boat museum (TLC) gets a donation from AMAZON.
 After you register us as your charity, use www.smile.amazon.com to make your normal purchases.  It’s easy, painless, free and everybody gets to smile.  What could be better?
