The native Seneca’s called it “Ga-we-not,” meaning the Great Island. The colonial French called it “La
Grande Île.” Grand Island — “the Heart of the Niagara” — is a 28-square-mile island in the middle of the
Upper Niagara River, centrally located between Buffalo (“the Queen City of the Great Lakes”) and Niagara
Falls (“the Cataract City”); a mere three-and-a-half miles upstream from the world-famous precipice! Grand
Island is a destination like no other with some of the most unique recreational opportunities in the country.
It is also a great place to live and raise a family with a low cost of living and high quality of life.

The Town of Grand Island is actually comprised of separate islands: Grand Island, Beaver Island, Buckhorn
Island and Pirates Island. Their combined land mass is more than five square miles, which is larger than the
islands that make up Manhattan, but with a lot less people! Grand Island is roughly eight miles long and six
miles across (at its widest) and very flat — there is only about 20 feet of difference between the highest and
lowest points on the Island.

Grand Island has a strong foothold in the colonial history of the U.S. dating back to the French and Indian
War up through the American Revolution and the War of 1812. Its towering oak trees were used to produce
barrel staves for rum and molasses in the West Indies and also to build some of the largest clipper ships in
America. In 1815, the State of New York purchased Grand Island from the Iroquois nation for just $1,000.

Grand Island grew into a community of flourishing
farms, quality hay crops and prolific orchards. It was
also home to many productive hunting and fishing
camps. Grand Island would later house amusement
parks, picnic groves and the summer homes and
social clubs of affluent Buffalonians. In addition, many
famous hotels, such as the Bedell House, were built
on the island for those who could not afford a summer
villa. People relished the bucolic setting and convenient
location not far from the city. Grand Island has been a
recreational destination for over 150 years!

Future U.S. President and Buffalo native Grover Cleveland was a frequent visitor to Grand Island. He was a
charter member of the Jolly Reefers, a Grand Island sportsmen’s club on Beaver Island. In addition,
Cleveland’s uncle, prominent Buffalonian Lewis F. Allen, for whom Buffalo’s Allentown neighborhood is
named, owned a nearby summer home known as River Lea. Allen founded the Falconwood Club, one of
Grand Island’s most prominent social clubs. River Lea, which is located in present-day Beaver Island State
Park, is now home to the Grand Island Historical Society. This historic home is now operated as a museum
dedicated to Grand Island’s rich history.

Previously part of the Town of Tonawanda, the Erie County Board of Supervisors created the separate Town
of Grand Island in 1852. Grand Island was only accessible by boat or ferry until the first bridge to the island
was constructed in June of 1935. Now home to four bridges and the New York State Thruway, Grand Island
is easily accessible and conveniently located within the Buffalo Niagara Region.

The Upper Niagara River offers some of the best fishing in North America with a wide array of species to net
including largemouth and smallmouth bass, muskellunge, northern pike, crappie and other fish species. You
can also find abundant perch, walleye and steelhead trout in nearby Lake Erie.

Lake Erie is famous for trophy-size walleye caught trolling offshore during the months of July and August. In
addition, the last five New York State record smallmouth bass have come from Lake Erie! Bass can be found
along the entire shoreline with hotspots located along rocky drop-offs. Steelhead can also be found in area

Western New York Bassmasters, a bass fishing club, holds a series of tournaments each year, including an
event on the Upper Niagara: www.wnybassmasters.com
