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.

Our 2021 season will open on Memorial Day.  In June, we will be open on Saturdays from 10:00 to 5:00 and on Sundays from 1:00 to 5:00.  For July and August, we will also be open on Wednesdays from noon to 5:00.  We have some exciting new exhibits and we look forward to seeing you here.

Members who wish to visit during off-hours are invited to contact us for a private tour.  Please call Craig Butler 716-982-7480 to arrange your tour.  Stay safe, be well, and come visit us.
